Logan Lyons

Family, Consumer, and Human Development

Logan Lyons is a third year doctoral student in Family, Consumer and Human Development. Logan is a true-blue-blooded aggie, being the daughter of two alumni and having herself earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Utah State. While in the FCHD department, Logan is concurrently studying sport psychology, planning to pursue a career as an intercollegiate sport’s psychologist. In the last three years, Logan has spent extensive time devoted to research in the Families in Sports lab, currently involved in an NCAA funded project seeking to understand the parental impact on the student-athlete experience. As a part of Logan’s program, she was recruited as a graduate instructor within the FCHD department. While teaching was never something Logan pictured for herself, she has found the experience of teaching to be both rewarding and gratifying. While being asked to teach outside of her own area of interest has been challenging at times, she has found that teaching undergraduates is a once in a lifetime experience, that comes with the responsibility to shape, but also the opportunity to inspire the next generation of Aggies.
