“I feel privileged to have worked with Dr. Mays as one of her undergraduate teaching assistants at UCLA for abnormal psychology in spring 2006, spring 2007, and spring 2008, learning more about the art of effective teaching.  In summer 2007, I worked with Dr. Mays on a project on American Indian Mental Health as well, gaining more experience and insight in the realm of psychological research.   Working with Dr. Mays has given me special skills I continue to use and build on today.”
