Jazmin Burns, PsyD

Jazmin Burns is AUCD's Communications and Engagement Emerging Leader Intern for 2019-2020. She is currently working as a Postdoctoral Scholar Fellow in the LEND program at the UC Davis MIND Institute. Jazmin graduated from Alliant International University - Sacramento in May 2019 with her Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology. She has been a part of the UC Davis MIND Institute and UC Davis Health System serving in many different roles since 2012. Her passion includes working with individuals who have neurodevelopmental disabilities and/or experienced trauma. Her passion also includes learning more about mental health policy and advocacy so that she can further support and empower families who feel as though they do not have a voice. Jazmin's dream is to continue to work at the UC Davis MIND Institute as a clinical psychologist, while simultaneously starting a private practice to serve underrepresented populations who have neurodevelopmental disabilities and mental health needs. In her free time, Jazmin enjoys traveling, cooking, eating, singing, watching movies/TV, playing videogames, and spending time with her husband and three cats. This is Jazmin's first year being a part of AUCD and she is very excited about what this year will bring!
