  1. When are you graduating? I plan to graduate May 2020.
  1. What are you career plans? After graduating from UWGB I plan to get a PhD in clinical psychology with a specialization in neuropsychology, studying with faculty whose research area is in the effects of TBI on self-regulation in veterans. After I earn my doctorate I hope to work in a VA hospital as a practicing Clinical Neuropsychologist, helping those that fight for our country and protect us on a daily basis.
  1. Why did you major in psychology? After sustaining a concussion in high school and losing most of my two years of Spanish, I became fascinated with the brain. Then after AP Psychology, learning about people’s behavior mainly, I wanted to know more and explore the various paths in which Psychology could take me. I developed a passion for learning how changes in the brain can affect how people behave and how their personality can change, and UWGB has been the perfect place for me to pursue that passion.
  1. What do you do for fun? When I’m not studying, researching, or attending classes, my favorite thing to do is sing. I am very active in various worship bands singing and sometimes playing the piano. Music is a big passion of mine and I love that I can do it anywhere I go.
  1. What academic experience or accomplishment are you most proud of? I am very proud to say that I am earning my Bachelor’s in Psychology after only 3 years in college. It has taken a lot of hard work and dedication, but it is so worth it.
  1. What is your favorite movie, book, or TV show related to psychology? One TV show I immediately thought of is The Mentalist. In this crime TV show the main character analyzes people’s body language, speech patterns, and behavioral patterns to deduce who most likely committed the crime. I find it very interesting and while I know it is just people acting out a script, it is very captivating and sometimes feels as if it could be real.
  1. What single thing do you hope to accomplish at UWGB before graduating? I hope to do an independent study involving the veteran population on campus so I can get experience in that area of research before applying to graduate school. I am very much looking forward to designing and conducting a research study on my own, with the help of the amazing UWGB faculty.
  1. What else do you want people to know about you? While I am an introvert at heart, I love getting to know new people and it brightens my day when someone new says hi!

2)  What are your career plans? Over the last couple years my career plans have been changing quite a bit. As of right now I hope to work with survivors of sex trafficking, sexual assault, and domestic violence. Right now I am working with the program Ey Heart World and that has been one of the most amazing experiences I have had. Therefore, I hope to continue working programs like this one. One day I hope to get a masters in counseling or social work to hopefully be able to go further with helping people in those situations.

3)  Why did you major in psychology? I majored in psychology because I had the hopes of becoming a counselor for children and psychology really fascinates me. I still would like to work with children, but I have learned a lot more over the years of what I can do with my psychology degree someday.

5)  What academic experience or accomplishment are you most proud of? I am most proud of the internships I have had the opportunity to be a part of in the last two years at UWGB. My internships have been a number of different areas that I could incorporate psychology from working on the podcast, being a peer mentor for the GPS program, working in the Psychology Student Success Center, and working with the program Eye Heart World. All have been amazing experiences and I cannot wait to see what else I will be able to do in the next year and a half.

I would love to hopefully do an independent study or an honors project before I graduate.
