MSPP Student Ambassador
University of Akron
4th year student, PsyD in Clinical Psychology program
Greetings! I am a 4th year Clinical Psychology doctoral student and I am the founder of the MSPP Military Community and the Program Coordinator of the Train Vets to Treat Vets® Program. I joined the Ohio Army National Guard in July 2006 as a 21B Combat Engineer and enrolled in the ROTC program at the University of Akron shortly after completing basic and advanced individual training. I received a commission as a Medical Service Officer in August 2010 and transferred to the Massachusetts Army National Guard, where I worked with the Medical Command Behavioral Health Team.
In April 2013, I was selected for the F. Edward Hébert Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP). I am currently applying for an APA pre-doctoral internship at one of the nation's five active duty Army medical facilities. After completing my internship and postdoctoral training, I will spend three years as an active duty Army Psychologist.
