What would people be surprised to know about you? I swam competitively for seventeen years, including at both the NCAA Division I and III levels.
What is a cause you’re passionate about? I am deeply interested in pursuing the advancement of women’s rights and the recognition of the disadvantages women, especially in this country, have to overcome on a day to day basis.
Why did you choose to attend MSP? MSP’s approach of thorough self exploration and comprehensive learning highly resonates with me, as I lean towards critically examining all materials and utilizing an intersectional framework.
What do you want to do with your degree/certificate? Although my intent is to apply for MSP’s PsyD program immediately following, I am particularly interested in continuing to broaden my learning experiences and hopefully continuing to work with the eating disorder population or perhaps with at-risk youth in the Metro Detroit area.
