My goals professionally going forward are to finish my education through a Ph.D. or Psy.D program and become a licensed therapist, my ultimate goal to practice therapy from my own private practice at affordable rates, trying to remain as accessible as possible to the members of my community who I know are in most need but with the least means. My number one goal for my education going forward is to start working as much as possible, be it through internships and programs as part of my education, with real people in need of help. I think learning through doing is the most essential aspect of the development of any profession or proficiency. The nature of the work I want to do is very sensitive and involves the mental health and overall well being of others, and so internships and smaller positions working with people in programs, even if not directly clinical in nature, are my number one priority to begin with as I continue my education. I want the experience and to develop the sensitivity and resilience necessary to be available and a positive influence on the direction and daily health of my neighbors. through those building blocks and my training in proper, research-backed and clinically proven methods provide members of those same communities with the assistance they and anyone deserves. Education's cost is difficult for many, and I know I and many others have had to work many long hours to do our best to responsibly keep up on our payments while still focusing on education. This means it can be difficult for someone entering the professions, especially ones as sensitive as psychology which involve so directly the well being of others, to work with community members who cannot afford to receive the help they deserve. Regardless, my ultimate goal will be to become financially independent and capable enough that I can provide high quality care affordably. This is not false modesty nor overconfidence, but an important aspect of my professional goals that I hope to see reflected in my places of education and employment, and in my own work. I take pride in doing good work whatever it may be, and respect the individuals, institutions and communities who thereby rely on my efforts.
Worked primarily seasonally (was attending university), in the summers working just around full time. Worked overnight, 12-hour shifts. Worked winter breaks. Despite working on average less time year-round then full time employees, great performance and reliability warranted trust with important jobs and taught to operate a wide variety of equipment on the floor, so that whenever necessary was available to fill positions and give fellow employees breaks.
Also one of the most longstanding student employees, returning for four summers, and staying on to work one weekend shift each week throughout 2 school years.
