    Kristin LoiselleKristin Loiselle is a first year postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Adherence and Self-Management. She completed her PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Georgia and her residency at Cincinnati Children's. Prior to fellowship, Kristin was involved in research examining adjustment to chronic medical conditions among children and families, as well as adherence to medical regimens for pediatric solid organ transplant recipients. She is currently involved with data analysis and manuscript preparation for the Modi and Pai labs.

    Kristin is an interventionist for the STAR study, which is a problem solving-based adherence promotion intervention for youth with epilepsy and their families. She will also provide clinical care to patients and families in the Small Bowel clinic, focusing on assessment and intervention throughout the transplantation process.

    Kristin plans to pursue a position at a children’s hospital/academic medical center, which will allow her to participate in research and clinical care. Additionally, she hopes to focus on research that targets risk and protective factors for adherence and related health outcomes.

    Rachelle RamseyRachelle Ramsey is a first-year postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Adherence and Self-Management. She completed her PhD at Oklahoma State University and her residency at Cincinnati Children's. Her research background focused on cognitive variables that influence the transactional relationship between parent and child adjustment to chronic conditions. Specifically, her dissertation examined the role of parent and child illness intrusiveness in the relationship between barriers to care and child depressive symptoms. Rachelle is currently involved in grant writing, manuscript preparation, and data analysis in the Hommel and Modi labs.

    Rachelle is also an interventionist on a randomized clinical trial aimed to improve oral medication adherence to anti-epileptic drugs (STAR trial) in children with epilepsy. She previously had experience as an interventionist on the TEAM study, a randomized clinical trial targeting oral medication adherence through telehealth behavioral treatment for adolescents with inflammatory bowel disease. Rachelle also conducts assessment and clinic-based interventions with children following small bowel transplantation.

    After her postdoctoral fellowship in the Center for Adherence and Self-Management, Rachelle plans to obtain a position within an academic medical center that would allow her to conduct research and provide clinical services to pediatric populations.
