Bio: I'm 23 years old from Shelby Montana. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in psychology from Carroll College in the spring of 2016. While at Carroll College, I was vice president of the psychology club and president the following, became a member of Psi Chi , and conducted research with Dr. Angel titled 'A Comparison of the Effects of a Human Sexuality Course on Students’ Sexual Attitudes, Behavior, and Knowledge at a Private, Catholic Liberal Arts College and a Public Liberal Arts College' which we presented at NITOP in 2016. After graduating from Carroll College, I began graduate school in the fall of 2016 at Boise State University for my Master's in Counseling with focus on Educational Counseling.  I am currently in the second of a three year program, now a member of Chi Sigma Iota and Counselors for Social Justice while also working as a transaction coordinator in real estate.

Questions: What are you currently doing with your psychology degree, and how did the Carroll College Psychology program help you get there?

Answers: I am currently in the second year of a three year program for my Masters in Counseling at Boise State University. The psychology program at Carroll College helped me in numerous ways. The curriculum at Carroll College was vigorously well rounded that I have been knowledgeable in each class I've taken for my graduate studies. The professors at Carroll College were fantastic at encouraging me to think more analytically in topics regarding psychology. Simply put, the psychology program at Carroll College is spectacular in every aspect: consulting with professors, involvement in the community, as well as building skills and knowledge that are both specific to psychology yet versatile in every aspect of life.
