Interesting facts about Dr. Smith: Dr. Smith states, “if I were not living my dream as a clinical psychologist, my (other) dream job would be working as a travel goddess (ala Samantha Brown) on the Travel Channel, where I would be a hotel and spa treatment critic. I would travel across the globe experiencing all the luxuries the finest hotels and spas have to offer, and guide travelers to the best amenities for their bucks.”
What do you enjoy about being a member of Division 42? Division 42 is full of rock stars! I joined this division at a student social so I would be eligible to win a prize—and win I did! Not only did I go home with a WAIS-IV, but a strong connection of colleagues, mentors and lifelong friends. In all seriousness, Division 42 members have unselfishly exposed me to what it truly means to practice psychology in an ethical and meaningful manner. I could not ask for anything more.
