The University of Northern Iowa Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling program currently has seven graduate assistants working for the program. As graduate assistants, we stay busy assisting our cooperating professors and working hard each day to better the program. The past two years kept graduate assistants particularly busy working to prepare for CACREP re-accreditation visit. Graduate assistants also work as liaisons of information between students and faculty. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact any of the graduate assistants listed.

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from St. Ambrose University in 2016. This is my second year in the School Counseling program at UNI. I'm interested in using the knowledge and skills that I gain from the program to develop a school counseling program that will help students become more self-aware. Helping students become more self-aware is important to me, because it will provide them a foundation needed to grow academically, socially and emotionally. All of which will prepare them for life after secondary school, whether in a career or post-secondary school. I hope to achieve these goals in a middle school or high school setting. Go Panthers!
