I am a nontraditional, 3rd year senior, majoring in psychology, with a minor in biology. I did not have the opportunity to pursue my dream 25 years ago. Life’s lessons and present day opportunities have helped me to follow my passion and pursue a PhD in psychology with a focus in oncology.
Psychoneuroimmunology is also an area of research that intrigues me. Three people very close to me, passed away at a fairly early age, from one form of cancer or another. The only thing that these three people had in common was the prolonged exposure to chronic stress.
