My name is Griselda Colin and “I Dream To” … work as a psychologist like Lindsay Heller.
I was inspired to want to work as a psychologist because I am interested in helping people with problems. My mentor Lindsay Heller told me she was first inspired to work as a psychologist because she loves to help people. She also thinks that it is interesting to hear about the different issues and different stories. She has encouraged me to keep up with my education and follow my dream.

  1. Dr. Lindsay Heller is one the hardest working women I know and I believe she is being rewarded now for all those years as a struggling student. Her dream of becoming a psychologist has come true because of her perserverance. She is an excellent role model as she studied, worked hard and never gave up on her dream. I should know — she is my daughter-in-law and I am very proud of her.

  2. I met Lindsay a few years ago and was also impressed by her drive, ability to work hard and natural curiousity about people and the world. Griselda, you asked some great questions and conducted a fantastic interview. Keep up all of your hard work in school and I look forward to seeing you join our great and and always interesting field of psychology. Dana Kiesel
