What would people be surprised to know about you? 

I am a student by day and a jazz vocalist by night. I also play three instruments including the piano, trumpet, and harmonica.

Name a cause you are passionate about.

I am most passionate about the relationship between a parent and child. It’s important to understand the differences in parenting styles and how that might effect the child’s development.

Why did you choose MSP?

I chose MSP because of the school’s focus on qualitative research and humanistic approach. In addition, this school aligns with my interest in children/adolescents.

What do you plan to do with your degree?

I would like to work for a clinic that focuses on children and, later, start working towards my PsyD.

What is your plan after graduation?

I plan to apply for a PsyD program, and down the line, I plan on having my own private practice.
