Bio:

Grace Zechman is a clinical research coordinator at Brazelton Touchpoints Center. Her research interests generally focus on early childhood and parent mental health.

She has an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Spanish from Sewanee: The University of the South. Grace co-published and presented an article that ​​investigated the association between attachment insecurity, compassionate caregiving goals, and daily well-being among parents during her time at Sewanee.

Most recently, Grace graduated with a Master’s degree from Tufts University in Child Study and Human Development. While there, she worked in the Tufts Interdisciplinary Evaluation Research (TIER) Lab which contributes to applied developmental science, policy science, and urban planning, and to improving policies and programs for children, families, and communities. In addition, she wrote her graduate thesis on “dark” personality traits in Dutch adolescents and their parents, and how parenting may play a role in the development of personality.

Grace’s career has just begun, yet her experiences and education in rural communities, tribal nations, and unique areas of developmental psychology allow her to bring an interdisciplinary approach to my research and work. After interning with Brazelton Institute and Touchpoints Center while a graduate student, she is very excited to join the team as a full-time employee!
