In Memoriam (1992-2017)

This one is from us to you "Ru"

This one is from us to you "Ru"

Jerusha was a doctoral student in the Combined Clinical, Counseling, & School Psychology Program. Jerusha graduated with a B.S. in psychology and a minor in philosophy from Bemidji State University, and an M.A. in clinical psychology with a behavioural emphasis from Minnesota State University, Mankato.

Jerusha was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and became a transfer student in the US when she was 19. Her experiences growing up in Malaysia initiated her research interest in the impacts of colonial mentality and internalized oppression on ethnic minority identity development and health outcomes. Her research interests also included racial microaggressions and health service utilization, cultural validation of clinical measures, diversity training program development, and sex education for women and girls in rural areas. Jerusha’s applied experiences included research consulting and data analysis, as well as work with adults living with schizophrenia, survivors of sexual violence, adults living with ADHD, academically gifted children and youth, and academically at-risk youth. 

In her free time, Jerusha enjoyed creative writing, drinking tea from around the world, and collecting Winnie the Pooh memorabilia.
