Margaret’s Answer

Hi Emily,
1. What profession did you choose? Why? I originally wanted to be a veterinarian, but I took an Abnormal Psychology class as an elective and loved it. I changed my major to Psychology. I knew I wanted to be a counselor and that I needed a Master's Degree. I chose a Master's in Community Counseling.
2. How many years of college did you go through? 4 undergrad, 2 1/2 grad
3. What jobs did you work on before you landed your present professional job? I was a volunteer on a rape crisis hotline ( volunteering is a good place to start work) in my junior year and this led me to a paid position as the Rape Crisis Hotline Volunteer Coordinator. I left there one I finished school and worked full time as a Crisis Counselor at a 24 hour crisis center. That is where I became a fully licensed counselor.
I hope this is helpful. Good luck to you! Margaret
