Graduate Degree in Psychology and Counseling

At Marywood, I learned the tools of building relationships from a counselor perspective.

I currently work as an undergraduate adviser at The Catholic University of America.  In my position, I hope I have a positive impact on students, similar to how I was influenced by my former Marywood professors.  I also enjoy research and would like to transfer those skills to academic advising.

Marywood has prepared me for a career in academic advising on the college level in several ways. At Marywood, I learned the tools of building relationships from a counselor perspective.  I also built strong mentor/student relationships, especially with Dr. Janet Muse-Burke, with whom I still maintain a friendship.

Marywood’s core values created such a great environment on campus.  I remember visiting as a high school student and feeling welcomed the moment I stepped on campus.  As I began my job search, I was hoping to find the same personal kindness and sense of community I felt at Marywood, so it was not a surprise that I ended up working at another Catholic university.
