What was your path to becoming a clinical psychologist?
My path to become a clinical psychologist became with me leaving Czech Republic. I got a position as a tennis counselor in a summer camp in Maine which then led to me receiving a tennis college scholarship in the US. After I graduated, I worked for two years a teaching tennis professional before I enrolled to Pace University. I knew I wanted to become a psychologist from teenage years.
What gets you excited about Parallel?
I am excited about the new approach to testing that I think has the potential to reach children who might not have access to assessments otherwise.
Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?
Identifying learning differences and helping children learn has a very significant influence on their self esteem, confidence, and mental health. It can change child's life if they receive assessment and interventions.
