Clinical Psychology Student, Psy.D. Class of 2020
College of Health Sciences-Downers Grove

Hometown: Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Undergraduate Degree: Louisiana State University - Baton Rouge, B.S. in Psychology  

Why did you decide to attend Midwestern University?

I gained acceptance into three Psy.D programs. My deciding factors were accreditation, specialization, and affordability. It was Midwestern that granted me all three - an American Psychological Association (APA) accredited program, an emphasis in Child and Adolescent Psychology, and affordable tuition and living expenses in the areas surrounding campus. 

What made you want to be a clinical psychologist?

At age 11, I decided I wanted a career that would allow me to help others. I have always had a passion for other's successes and a desire to aid in the accomplishment of their goals. I decided a clinical psychologist is what I would become. After interning at McMains Children's Developmental Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana throughout my undergraduate career and during my year-and-half gap prior to graduate school, I realized I had chosen the perfect profession for myself.

What do you enjoy most about being a student at Midwestern University?

While being a student at Midwestern University has required considerable adjustment, I have been most pleased to find myself surrounded by like-minded individuals across the various programs. I have met many students through the Fellowship of Christian Healthcare Professionals. I also had the opportunity to gain intergenerational, interprofessional experience last year when I worked along with an Occupational Therapy student and a geriatric patient at a local nursing home. That experience is one of my most cherished memories as a Midwestern University student and a future practicing psychologist.
