My advisor, Dr. Horton, has really helped me overcome some of the challenges that have come up in my years in the program. The liberal arts education provided at GCC has truly enhanced my overall experience as a psychology student. Classes such as Civilization and Speculative Mind gave me the opportunity to analyze aspects of human behavior within history and religion.

This year, I hope to balance being a captain of the Varsity Swim Team and a student. In years past, my captains have helped me stay focused on school while keeping me mentally tough to perform in the pool when I need to and I hope I can pass it on to the team this year.

At this time my plans include enlistment in the U.S. Navy, but I feel confident that the program has more than prepared me to write and research professionally as my plans lead to more job opportunities down the road.
