What did Samantha have to offer?

I've been interested in Psychology and Psychiatry for years. I was an active volunteer in college (15 years ago), including at the Yale/New Haven Child Psychiatric Ward and a social center for people with mental illnesses in New Haven. I became close with a woman at the social center and came to realize the stigma I held regarding mental illnesses. Based on that experience, I developed a documentary to help reduce the stigma against mental illness. After college I decided to pursue a career in TV and marketing, instead of Psychology/Psychiatry. This opportunity at the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry would allow me to come full-circle and apply my marketing skills to a passion of mine since college. I have over 10 years in marketing experience, an MBA, and I'm interested in the subject matter (I was a Psychology major and considered entering the field).
