Jessi Beebe

Jessica (Jessi) Beebe recently graduated with a Bachelors of Science from the Department of Human Development and Family Science as a Top 10 senior. I am now currently enrolled as a graduate student at Oklahoma State University. I decided that sticking around Stillwater was a great decision. I am now acting as an RA/lab manager for OSU's Child Trauma lab in the Human Development and Family Science program. Being involved in a research lab helped me to find opportunities to meet faculty and spread my wings at OSU. I developed many relationships which led me to my decision to stay. I hope to graduate with a Masters in Human Development and Family Science - Applied Human Services in a couple of years and then may pursue more professional school.

Sierra Fouts

Sierra Fouts was a CAMP Lab research assistant for three semesters before completing her degree and graduating with a BA in Psychology in December of 2017. Following graduation, Sierra received acceptance into Oklahoma State University's Marriage & Family Therapy graduate program, as well as a position at Wings of Hope Family Crisis Services as a Shelter Advocate working with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Sierra is grateful to Dr. Ciciolla and the CAMP Lab for creating a supportive environment which helped to foster professional competence, individual research aspirations/interests, and an increased understanding of parent-child attachments, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, and their implications. Sierra plans to use the knowledge and skills she gained while working in the lab to serve her as a graduate student and eventually as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. 

Courtney Hartman

Courtney Hartman joined the CAMP Lab in Fall 2016. As part of the lab, she explored numerous and varied interests, including parent-child relationships and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) from infancy to adolescence, as well as pressure to pursue an “ideal” body in adolescence. Elements of these interests appear in her current work examining the development of gender and gender norms in childhood. Courtney graduated from OSU with honors in May 2017, receiving a BS in Psychology. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology (Developmental Psychology Concentration) at Saint Louis University. The CAMP Lab has equipped her with tools to begin building her brand of research in developmental psychology, and has strengthened her desire to work with children and parents. In addition, her contributions to the PMAST and exploration of ACEs have sparked an interest in public health. She is a member of Women’s Voices Raised, an advocacy group for women, and volunteers with organizations dedicated to providing aid and support to women and children, including the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank and The Women’s Safe House.

After completion of her undergraduate degree in May 2019, Hannah hopes to attend a postgraduate program for a Master of Social Work abroad.
