If I could earn a living doing what I loved most it would be working as a family therapist and experimental psychologist for the military. Not only is psychology (in all of its forms) my passion, it is the goal I have for my life. Spending my time helping the families of our nations heroes is so important to me because I was raised up an Army Brat. Going through deployments were tough when, as a child, I felt as if my world was unaligned for months and years at a time. Back then, I did not understand the crucial role that those family therapists played in my, and every other family’s lives. Their job was to keep us together and fully functioning as best we could while our loved ones were shipped off to war. The respect that I gained for those family therapists drove me down the career path that I am on today. Alongside the hands-on aspect, figuring out cognitively and logically, how the mind works is intriguing to me in its rawest form. I love learning about what makes people tick and figuring out the limits and the expectations of the mind. Spending all of my time doing something as interesting as studying the mind, and getting paid for it, is definitely a dream of mine.
