I am joined by Mackenzie Quinn M.Ed, RBT. She openly shares her multi-test taking experience and her professional journey into the field of Behavior Analysis, focusing on what she "wish she knew then".
With a Masters from Arizona State University, and her supervision hours complete, she shares her experiences when working directly with clients in the field with on-site BCBA supervisors, her experiences as a multiple test taker, and her tips for maintaining a resilient and optimistic mindset when life turned out differently than how she planned.
Join me for my brain dump on balancing knowing a science, being curious about human behavior, and figuring out how to balance believing in things we can’t see. Maybe constant doubt is okay? And maybe we can just ride the identity journey instead of trying to solidify who we are and keep it that way forever. Maybe we can let ourselves evolve, and practice that psychological flexibility. Maybe if who we are changes over time thats something to embrace and celebrate?
