Kathryn Simon is an MA student, focusing on interpersonal communication. While working toward her undergraduate degree, she worked as a research assistant on a study about former cancer patients’ perceptions of the term “survivor” and how this affected participation in survivorship services. She also completed her undergraduate thesis with a study on co-rumination and its effects on gender, friendship qualities, and coping efficacy. She is currently teaching undergraduate courses in public speaking and is excited to be a part of the CAS community.
