When will you graduate? I will be graduating May of 2017.
What are your career plans? My plan is to graduate from UWGB and get accepted into the Clinical Psychology graduate program at UW-Madison. I want to work as a Children’s Clinical Psychologist.
Why did you major in psychology? Psychology really became an interest of mine after one of my family members was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease. It really opened my eyes to how easily our brains can be effected and change. It made me want to learn more about how our brains worked.
What do you do for fun? When I have free time, I enjoy watching movies, cooking, touring brewery’s, and playing with my munchkin cat. I also spend time with my big sister and my friends.
What academic experience or accomplishment are you most proud of? I am most proud of my involvement in different areas, not only through the psychology program, but in the community as well. It has been so rewarding and has taught me so much.
What’s your favorite movie, book, and TV show related to psychology? Since I am a huge movie person it makes it hard to pick just one of my favorite movies related to psychology. If I were to choose they would have to be Silence of the Lambs, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is also one of my favorite books. For a TV show it would have to be Criminal Minds.
What single thing do you hope to accomplish at UWGB before graduating? I hope to complete my honor’s project and I would love to be able to present at MPA again before graduating.
What else do you want people to know about you? One thing is that I have cystic fibrosis.
