Our Ambassadors

Annise Wassman

Hello!  My name is Annise Wassman.  I recently moved to Denver from St. Louis, Missouri, to pursue a degree in Child, Family, and School Psychology.   Upon graduation, I will have completed the Education Specialist program (EdS) with a concentration in Early Childhood School Psychology.   I chose Morgridge because I love the optimistic learning environment created here!  The amount of hands-on and interactive experience I will receive throughout my education is incomparable to other colleges.  In a few years I hope to have a position as a School Psychologist to work with children specifically concerning early detection and diagnosis of disabilities.  My biggest piece of advice to prospective students is to take your time to really decide which program and school is best for you and your needs.  In making a decision, it is essential to visit the school and meet with faculty or other students to determine if you truly feel at comfortable and “at home”.   Hope to see you soon!

Sarah Pettay

My name is Sarah Pettay. I am from Omaha, Nebraska and am enrolled in the Counseling Psychology Master’s Program. In 5-10 years, I hope to have found a career in counseling psychology working with at-risk youth. I would like to stay in Colorado because of the people here, the variety of activities going on all the time, and the mountains. I chose Morgridge because it is a well-respected program and has more opportunities than some other colleges. I am able to get hands on experience as a first year student which was a big deal to me. The faculty that I met on interview day were also a big influence on my decision because they are all so welcoming and really want me to be successful in the field. My biggest piece of advice to prospective students is to make sure to actually come to campus and get a feel for the atmosphere at any place you are interested in. Being on campus and meeting potential professors you could have really gives you the best idea of what your graduate experience will be like. Also, do not be afraid to ask any questions you might have because that is the best way to learn more about the opportunities available to you.
