Rebecca Freitag

Position title: Formerly: Study Coordinator, Know Your Emotions Study


Current Position
Program Administrator, Department of Kinesiology and Occupational Therapy, UW-Madison

My name is Rebecca and I graduated from UW-Madison in 2017 with a B.A. in psychology. Since graduation, I have been working as the study coordinator for the longitudinal RISK study which focuses on childhood anxiety in at-risk preadolescent girls. I am passionate about this research because I believe it is important to learn more about anxiety symptoms and their development and I am proud to work in a research lab that is dedicated to the long-term goal of developing early interventions. While my future plans are up in the air right now I know that I am interested in continuing to work in a mental health related field, preferably with an adolescent population. For now, I am happy just seeing where life takes me!
