Personal Interests

When I am not working as an intern or attending class at UT, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend of almost 9 years and our dog, Winston. We love to go for walks on the Nature Trails and have fun socializing at the dog parks around Knoxville. I personally enjoy reading, connecting with family and friends near and far, and volunteering. I plan to begin to volunteer at the Sexual Assault Center of East Tennessee this summer. I love to travel, watch sports, and go to sporting events in my spare time.

Future/Vocational Goals

I am very open to different professional positions in my future in the world of counseling. I would very much enjoy working in the clinical realm as a community mental health counselor in some capacity, whether it be within an agency or treatment facility. On the other hand, I believe that I would thrive within a school setting as a school counselor, working with middle or high school students. What I know for sure is that I desire to use my developing skills as a pre-professional counselor to assist those in need to the best of my ability.

What sold you on this program?

When I interviewed for the clinical mental health counseling program with Jeff Cochran and Shawn Spurgeon, I knew from the get-go that these professors cared about their students. I came to understand that the faculty as a whole would go to great lengths to assist students in the program and give them the individualized support and direction they needed. I also found that the many different opportunities students are granted within the practicum and internship phases of the program are unique and essential to the experience in a clinical environment.

What would you tell an incoming student who joins the program/department?

I would tell an incoming student who joins the program/department to be more open-minded about the experience and less strict about initial expectations of graduate school. Originally when I was accepted into the program, I believed that I knew exactly what I wanted to get out of the experience and where I wanted to be by the end of my time here. I came to realize that by letting my guard down and accepting more of a laid-back attitude, I opened myself up to greater opportunities and an even richer experience than I had originally anticipated. I jumped at the chance to enroll in the Dual Degree Program, accepted the role of intern at two separate internship sites in my second year, and offered my time to serve on the CSI Executive Council for two years running. Allowing myself to be open to new experiences during my time at UT, though challenging, has ultimately helped me believe in my own power to do things that I did not expect or know I could do.
