MY EXCEPTIONAL STORY

Why Mount?
I learned about Mount Union from a family friend who graduated from here. I fell in love with the campus and I knew I would be going into a very strong track program. Mount is a very small but close University. Because everyone is so close, students have a better opportunity to reach out to their professors to get personal help when needed.

No Place Like the Track
What I like most about Mount is my track team. My favorite place here would be the track, where I spend hours upon hours working hard to achieve my goals.

Preparing for Success
With the classes I am taking, I am being prepared for the types of classes I will eventually be taking in graduate school. Also, Mount prepares students for things such as interviews and internship opportunities.

Helping Others
I’ve always had a passion for helping people. I knew all my life that this is what I wanted to do with my life. I have had many personal experiences that have encouraged me to go into the field of psychology and counseling.

First Internship
Last summer I was a classroom behavior therapist at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Autism for two months. I had first hand experience with autistic children and the professional world of psychology.

Introduction to Counseling
My favorite class I’ve taken is Introduction to Counseling. I think the class really taught me the basic skills to be a successful helper.

Mentor Inspiration
I would have to say my favorite professor is Dr. Michelle Vaughan. She has inspired me by her many accomplishments in the field of psychology. She has helped me confirm the fact that I do want to be a clinical psychologist.

How Mount Makes a Difference
I think the combination of a liberal arts education and professional preparation makes for a versatile student who can bring a lot of different things to the table.

Caring for Others
My career goal is to become a licensed clinical psychologist, working at an eating disorder clinic as a therapist for teenage girls.
