1) What inspired you to pursue your degree?
“I eventually fell in love with the idea of helping others.”After graduating from college with a Bachelor’s in Psychology, I began working on an inpatient unit for children and adolescents. Initially, I was unsure whether I would be able to pursue a career in psychology, but I eventually fell in love with the idea of helping others. The more I learned about psychology and the more I interacted with the patients on the unit, the more invested I became in developing a better understanding of mental health.
2) Describe your experience at William James College?
It's been amazing! The experientially-based learning approach that William James has adopted enables students to both discuss concepts and theories in class, and then apply those same concepts in real-world situations outside of the classroom.
3) What do you envision doing in your career post-graduation?
Ideally, I envision myself becoming a unit psychologist on an inpatient unit for children and adolescents. I have had the privilege of working with some amazing unit psychologists in the past, and I would love to assume that role at some point in the future.
