Andryce Clinkscales received her B.S. in Psychology and Spanish from Grand Valley State University in 2018. Throughout her undergraduate career, she gained valuable experience with diverse populations abroad and volunteering with immigrant families in the Grand Rapids area. This, and her post baccalaureate experience providing services to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, has helped her develop a desire to advocate for culturally and linguistically diverse youth and families. Her current research interests include bilingual education, consultation strategies and professional development trainings on cultural competence, and ensuring highly effective service delivery to marginalized students.
When she is able, Andryce enjoys reading fiction novels, trying new restaurants, and walking her dog Lewis.
