Meet Some of AUNE’s PsyD Students | Diverse Backgrounds

 

Earning a degree in Clinical Psychology is a rigorous five-year commitment. But if you think the PsyD students at Antioch University New England spend all their time nose-down in a book or computer, think again. Many lead busy and fascinating lives outside the classroom. Here are just a few of them:

Jennifer Amato | Boxer

A little over two years ago, Jennifer Amato, also a second-year PsyD student, began boxing, just to get in shape. In only her second fight, she won the New England Golden Gloves 112-lb. class; three months later, she went on to defeat a three-time national Junior Olympic champion. She is on her way to the Women’s National Golden Gloves competition, July 7-12, in Florida. But there’s more keeping Jen busy than school and boxing. Find out more about Jen.
