Hi! Nice to meet you!

My name is Larissa Kindred and I'm a master's student in the mental health counseling program at the University of Massachusetts Boston.  I have a bachelor's degree in Women's and Gender Studies from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.  My academic focus is on gender dynamics and the intersection of race, gender, and sexuality with mental health.  I was born and raised LDS and was an endowed member for many of my adult years. While I am no longer practicing, I feel a strong camaraderie with LDS women because of our shared experiences.

More about me...

I am mixed race Asian-American and grew up in Utah.  My husband, Jeff, is a physician and we have 3 kids that are all adopted.  I am an animal lover and we have an Australian Shepherd dog, a Bengal cat, a Holland Lop rabbit and a guinea pig.  I am a major foodie and I love trying new restaurants and different types of food, although, we all know that Asian food is top tier.  I also love reading, hiking, and traveling.  My most favorite activity in the world is having meaningful conversations and connecting with people I care about.  In 2020 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and was treated through 2021.  That experience was life-changing for me and I'm very happy to be known as a breast cancer survivor now!
