Program: Doctorate of Psychology (PsyD) in Clinical Psychology

Why She Chose Loyola: When I first visited Loyola, I could immediately see myself coming here one day. The campus was beautiful and my shuttle driver was more than happy to help me figure out where I needed to go. I loved how welcoming, engaging, and supportive the Psychology Department’s faculty, students, and staff were...Ultimately, I felt that Loyola was a place where I could stay true to myself while also continue to grow as a professional and human being.

Fun Fact: I love to cook. My favorite go-to recipe is any type of pesto from scratch (classic basil with pine nuts, refreshing arugula with walnuts, etc.). Not only does it taste delicious, but it finishes up any leftover greens that you might be tired of eating in salad-form or herbs that you are not able to use quick enough.

What do her peers have to say?: "Christine is only a first year in the doctoral program and is already making waves. Aside from always asking thoughtful questions and comments in class, she is a true leader who is involved with many advisory groups- most notably at the Loyola Clinical Centers, where she has taken the lead on addressing long-overdue issues of cultural competence. She also helps with running a social skills group at the clinic for members of the community. Her organizational skills are spectacular, and I am constantly impressed that she has been able to dive right in to this graduate school experience and make meaningful contributions. None of these are required of first-years in the program, but she has taken the initiative to seek out opportunities in which she knows she can excel. I admire Christine's passion for the field of clinical psychology and have no doubt that she'll continue to do great things, both in the field and for this program." -Submitted by Serena Lao
