Being a psychologist is more than a professional career for me. My passion for the field has long motivated me to look for ways to help advance psychology as a science, as a profession, and as a means of promoting human well-being. When I first moved to NH almost four years ago, I immediately joined NHPA and was thrilled to encounter so many like-minded professionals and I was excited at the opportunity to join the Early Career Psychologists (ECP) Committee. This past year, I have had the absolute pleasure of working, both behind and in front of the scenes, with such a passionate and amazing working board of professionals as the NHPA President-Elect and a member of the CE committee. Ever since I have been a working member of NHPA, I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to work closely with many talented and passionate professionals. I continue to have expanded my positions in NHPA to include the liaison for the Board of Psychologists in order to make sure psychologists of NH’s voices are heard. I strongly believe in our profession and its benefits to the community as well as NHPA’s role in assisting those around the state obtaining their license and continuing to receive high quality and ethical training. For these reasons, I am honored to serve as your President this year. Thank you and be well.
