What lead you to becoming a clinical psychologist?

I started my career as a teacher. I was pursuing my doctoral degree in education at NYU. I took a clinical diagnosis and assessment class and found my passion was in clinical psychology so I changed my educational and career path. The more I trained in assessment the more interested I became in using assessment as a tool to help students.

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

I'm passionate about helping students with learning differences because I believe that a singular didactic/pedagogical model is limiting and that identifying a student's learning style helps build on his/her/their strengths and helps mitigate relative weaknesses, improving his/her/their chances of feeling/being successful which can then translate to a greater sense of competence and self-esteem which propels him/her/them to fulfill their potential not only in school but across multiple areas of life.

I enjoy traveling and getting to know about other cultures through their architecture, museums, food and markets.
