Woodard is interested in gaining experience in behavioral, neurological and clinical research which she believes all contribute to successful treatments. To that end, she is also working in Dr. Kelly Rohan’s lab exploring Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). And, she is interning this fall at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility for women in South Burlington. She works in a case management office helping inmates reintegrate into society by finding housing and support services. The internship has given Woodard perspective on the large percentage of people incarcerated for drug-related offenses. “Unfortunately a lot of women spend many years cycling in and out of jail –it’s especially challenging being released into the environment that encourages addictive behaviors. I feel like I’m developing the behavioral and clinical background to help come up with positive solutions.”
