More About

Tabitha graduated from the University of Georgia in 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in Criminal Justice. She received a master’s degree in experimental psychology from Georgia Southern University in 2021. During her time at Georgia Southern she worked as a graduate student for the REFLECT program where she participated in multiple research projects. As she began to narrow down her research interests for her thesis, “Influence of Political Affiliation on Perceived Media Bias and Trustworthiness in the COVID-19 Pandemic”, she combined her interests in social psychology and political science, which led her to the sub-field of political psychology. When she’s not working on research or schoolwork you can find Tabitha playing fetch with her cat, in the stands cheering on any UGA sports team, or trying to improve her drawing skills.
