Jennifer Anne Brinkley, G-'99, a Ph.D. candidate at Argosy University in Seattle, Washington, has been selected to receive the 2007 International Alumnae of Delta Epsilon Sorority Fellowship Award.
She earned her B.A. in Psychology from California State University, Northridge, and her M.A. in Counseling from Gallaudet University. She worked for a few years in the field of counseling deaf individuals and families before returning to school to pursue her doctorate degree in clinical psychology. She is currently working part time as a mental health clinician in the Deaf Services Department at Seattle Mental Health.
Ms. Brinkley’s goals are to become a licensed Washington State psychologist and to pursue a teaching career at a local university in Seattle. Due to her interest in the study of human behavior, she is doing research on how behavior is caused by biological, social, and psychological conditions. After she receives her doctorate, she will provide psychological evaluations and teaching, which she hopes will improve the lives of deaf and hard of hearing people and ultimately inspire them to believe in themselves.
The alumnae of the Delta Epsilon Sorority congratulate Ms. Brinkley as one who richly deserves the award because her hard efforts to obtain a higher education will enable her to assist deaf and hard of hearing people to understand themselves better.
