Congratulations Elaine!

Even more exciting graduate school news from our wonderful research assistants; Elaine Yao, one of our former RAs, just got accepted to Pepperdine University’s Master’s program in Clinical Psychology with Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy!

“Thanks to Dr. Tomiyama, my application process was as easy as can be! Dr. T devoted her time to work with the RAs on our grad school applications such as our CVs, Personal Statements, and even invited UCLA’s current grad students for a Q&A session. When the time came for me to apply, I already had everything laid out and knew exactly how to present myself”, Elaine says.

Throughout her two years in the DiSH lab, Elaine was involved in several studies, and also coordinated all of our social media outlets. She was a great asset, and even though we miss having her in the DiSH lab, we are very happy that she is doing so well!

“Being on the DiSH lab team was a great learning experience for me. I’m going to miss my time there, but I am excited to start a new path towards therapy. Go DiSH Lab!!!”, Elaine says.

Best of luck to you Elaine! We can’t wait to see what else you are going to accomplish!
