What are you doing now?

I am currently a first year PhD student in Human Development and Family Science at the University of Georgia. I am also serving as a Graduate Research Assistant.

How did UNA’s Psychology program help you achieve what you have become?

The Psychology Department provided an environment for professional development and enrichment through networking and research projects. The professors were supportive, knowledgeable, and accessible; without their help and the opportunities provided I could not have reached my goals.

What advice would you give students who are interested in becoming UNA Psychology majors?

Get to know your peers and professors. Be involved in the Psychology Club and try to be on as many research projects as possible.
