Jessica Johnson, Class of 2006, graduated with a BA in psychology and completed an independent study research project with Shannon Brady on “Why words matter: Enhancing motivation to attend couples’ counseling.” She has spent the past 3 years working for the Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative (CAHMI) at OHSU doing research in child and adolescent health. Her favorite extracurricular has been training for the annual Thrill the World Thriller dance performance and practicing her best zombie scare. Temporarily, she is hanging up her research hat to pursue community service work in Astoria (near her hometown of Gearhart) with the AmeriCorps HOPE Project. She is planning on attending graduate school for her PhD/MSW or MPH (or both!) in the fall of 2010.
