Michael Vale

4th Year Graduate Student

Michael is examining whether stress that is unique to particular types of long-term couples can be reduced by a supportive environment.  He will be examining traditional and non-traditional relationships as he tries to determine what contributes to our happiness.

When he's not in the lab, he loves to see musicals, watch the Golden Girls (while enjoying a slice of cheesecake of course), and look at cute pictures of dogs.  He has also attended many dog shows in his young life.

Jennifer enjoys running, hiking, yoga, taking pictures of her cats, trying new restaurants, and watching The Goofy Movie. She loves being outdoors and exploring the trails around NE Ohio. She also likes to read, paint, and build puzzles on rainy days.

Katelyn Frey

2nd Year Graduate Student

Katie is exceptionally thrilled to continue research in the world of adult development and aging!


Outside of all things psychology, she fancies herself an accomplished thespian, an amateur chef, a cat enthusiast, an up-and-coming television and film critic, a diehard Yinzer, and an avid historical romance fan. It’s probably for the best that she keeps her day job!
