Originally from New Jersey, Jessenia recently graduated from The College of Mount Saint Vincent with a B.A. in Psychology, and a minor in Sociology. She was Vice President of the Psychology Club. Jessenia enjoyed conducting research underneath one of the assistant psychology professors at the college. She was inducted into three different honor societies (Psi Chi, Kappa Gamma Pi and Alpha Kappa Delta). Jessenia also enjoyed doing peer tutoring for Intro to Psychology I, II and Psychological Statistics her junior and senior years. This inspired her to not just pursue a career in child psychology, but also teaching psychology at the college level. Blue Engine is the perfect stepping stone for Jessenia and she is excited to start this new chapter gaining classroom experience. Jessenia is planning on applying to graduate school in two years to obtain her Master’s and Ph.D in clinical child psychology. She hopes to open her own private children’s clinic someday.
