"Following the completion of my graduate program at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, I intend to pursue a position as a psychologist in a school setting. I am passionate about working with and advocating for children. In the school environment, educators have great potential to positively impact the lived of children and youth and I would like to be part of that."
