Featured Student Member

Mackenzie Boon


My name is Mackenzie Boon, and I am a doctoral candidate in the school psychology program. This year, I am serving as a school psychologist intern in a local school district here in Utah, and am thoroughly enjoying my time out in the field. I’m also starting work on my dissertation. I am particularly interested in looking at the effects of a mindfulness-based intervention on anxiety symptomatology in adolescent females with autism spectrum disorder. On a fun note, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, cooking, and hiking, and also love to attend concerts and plays when I have the time.
