Biography


Dr. Hendricks is a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing. Dr. Hendricks received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in 2018. Dr. Hendricks was a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Future of Nursing Scholar during her dissertation study: An Exploration of the Manifestation of Parentification Among Young Carers of a Parent with Huntington’s Disease. She received her PhD in Nursing from UAB in 2021.

Dr. Hendricks has worked as a research assistant on studies primarily focused on caregiving, cancer survivorship, and community engagement. She is building a program of research exploring the experiences of young carers (children aged <18) in specific disease contexts, such as cancer, with the goal of improving awareness and support for this often-overlooked group of caregivers.
