How has being a P&N graduate helped shape your professional success?

I am incredibly grateful for my Duke University education. The experiences I gained helped prepare me for graduate school, which was a doctorate in clinical psychology, and allowed me to continue to pursue my dreams.

What advice would you give students in Psychology?

I would encourage students to take advantage of the Honors Thesis Program to practice independent analytical thinking and research skills. I also recommend getting involved in different research laboratories of interest as well as relevant community service programs.
