GA to the Executive Board, 2020-2021

I received my Bachelor of Science in psychology from the College of Charleston in 2012. I am currently a second year master’s student in Counselor Education at Virginia Tech. My short-term goal after graduating in May 2021 is to begin working as a School Counselor at the high school level. I want to work with young people as they navigate the social-emotional, academic, and all-around life struggles of adolescence as they transition into early adulthood. My long-term goal is to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) so that I can also support people in the community by providing mental health counseling services to those in need.

I will be serving as the graduate assistant to the GSA this year. In this role, I will support the officers of the exec board in their efforts to serve the entire graduate student community at Virginia Tech. I hope to use my innate sense of empathy and my communication skills to gain an understanding of what the graduate students at Tech need to be happy, healthy, and successful, so that the appropriate steps can be taken to meet those needs.
