While writing my dissertation there were many moments of writer’s block. During one, I wrote about the scene outside my window. It became a metaphor for my thesis: that reflecting on our actions and the stories we tell ourselves can help us be better educators, counselors, and human beings. The dissertation, titled--Living a Life Beyond Fear: A Narrative Exploration of College Career Counseling and Student Affairs Professional Preparation, is currently being reviewed by my faculty committee.
