Thank You Elysia and Angelica!

25 May

We want to say THANK YOU to our most recent interns Angelica and Elysia who spent their last day with us today.  Both have

Elysia Amoroso

just graduated from the University of Baltimore and were here in order to complete their capstone senior projects in psychology.  Angelica is off to accumulate more medical internship hours towards an eventual career as a physican’s assistant.  Elysia is taking a short break to travel and then will likely be moving on to graduate school for clinical health psychology.

Both women spent more time with our PRP than their school internships required and both were highly valuable.  They helped out on trips, assisted with class-time activities, provided extra eyes and ears on our recent Aquarium trip, and jointly ran a Friday morning Spanish club that several clients

found interesting.  Spanish language resources are surprisingly difficult to come by in Harford County and they were especially useful with our few Hispanic clients.  Elysia and Angelica were required by their school to write research papers with literature reviews as part of their internship, and so deeply integrated both academic and hands-on knowledge.

Both have been highly active in, and officers of, their school’s chapter of Psi Chi — The International Honor Society in Psychology.

We wish them much luck and success in their future endeavors!
