"In my role as an interpretive volunteer at the Atlanta History Center, I have enjoyed being able to answer visitors' questions about what life was like during earlier eras.

I am currently pursuing a phD in Psychology with a concentration in Applied Cognitive Brain Science at Drexel University. Working with premiere researcher Michael ...
