from the University of South Carolina in 2004. In 2007 I did complete some graduate work in clinical psychology at Barry University. In January of 2008 I began to work part- time in the financial services field, specifically bail bonds. I have since obtained my bail bond license and have worked in as a licensed agent. In my internship, I was given the opportunity to significantly participate in and learn about the bail bond industry and running a small business. Being involved in the bail bond industry is considered to be part of the financial services field, there is much more to it than emulating the shenanigans that are seen on “Dog, The Bounty Hunter”. Today, I work for Lee Mental Health as a clinician (therapist) in Rieves residential program. In this position I am part of a multi-disciplinary team that consists of clinicians, nurses, and psychiatrists in an inpatient setting.

I run a total of 9 hours of group therapy per week and carry a caseload of six individuals for therapy on an individual basis.

This is my first semester at Hodges University and my first online course; I am sure that my experience at Hodges University will be a positive one. I am pursuing my MBA on a full-time basis and working at Lee Mental Health full-time. I plan on relating my education at Hodges to my current career, my past experience working in small- business, and to foster my entrepreneurial and leadership abilities.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
