Kaylee’s passion is to lead people to, and be actively involved in, productive change. Whether that’s a change within themselves, those around them, or in their community. This passion is what sparked her interest in her capstone research project that addresses involuntary psychiatric treatment, self-determination theory, and treatment interventions/outcomes. She believes that we will see change within ourselves, communities, and world when we strive to equip and empower others to carry out and lead change within themselves and those around them.
