DEPARTMENT




As an undergraduate student, I drifted between various career paths. Initially, I was declared as an accounting major, although after a study abroad opportunity, I decided that my interest in social psychology was more appealing. I experimented with several courses the next semester and became completely fascinated with social development, and ultimately with a major in psychology.

Following graduation, I spent some time working in the field of developmental disabilities and deciding on a graduate plan. I had considered pursuing my doctorate in clinical psychology, but in the end decided I was less interested in research and testing, and more in psychotherapeutic intervention.
