I'm currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, where I direct research for the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health's Institute for Extraordinary Living Yoga in the Schools program, which evaluates yoga for child and adolescent mental health.
My schedule is quite busy at the moment, so I'm not undertaking any new research consulting contracts at this time.

"When I recently needed to hire someone to help me coordinate a national study on yoga and mental health, I did not hesitate for an instant. I called Bethany right away! She had impressed me with her very informed and efficient approach to data analysis on a study that we worked on together a year ago. She came in on the project at the latter stages but quickly got herself up to speed and turned out a polished manuscript that the group was able to submit in a very timely manner. An open-hearted person and a pleasure to work with, Bethany is a competent and versatile researcher and I am pleased to call her a colleague and co-author!"
I've presented my research findings in diverse settings ranging from corporate boardrooms to academic conferences across North America. I've also published articles in top journals and written a book in the self-help genre. Below is a sampling of the topics I've covered:
Ph.D., Social Psychology (2008)
"I first noticed Bethany's talents by her ability to understand complex and interrelating concepts and then apply these concepts to enhance her research deliverables. She has been consistently excellent in her research preparation, as demonstrated through her organization, quick thinking and demand from other research associates to work with her. Bethany displays an ability to think on her feet, work extremely well in team and individual settings and enriches the experience of her co-workers through her willingness to go above and beyond. Her academic background and ability to manage projects and other researchers, further compliments her abilities in the research setting."
