My name is Katelyn. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Kutztown University and am working on a Master’s in Counseling from the same university. I have a special interest in sports performance counseling and hope to obtain my PhD. in Sports Counseling and become a Certified Sports Performance Counselor.
I am a firm believer in the mind-body connection. Treating your body well and giving it what it needs will help you improve your mental state. Along with posts about mental health, I will also be posting about exercise, nutrition, and how to take care of your body physically.
I am: a 20 something Bachelor’s degree holder working on her Master’s in Mental Health Counseling. I’m a big sister and best friend to my two siblings.
I’m from: Hershey, Pennsylvania! Yes, the town really does smell like chocolate. They even have Hershey Kisses as street lights! So cute!
I want to be: Sports Performance Counselor for a professional sports team. NFL, MLB, NHL, PGA, all of it! I grew up watching sports and have a love for competition. If you want to read more about how my family influenced my career choices check out this post about my brother!
I am obsessed with: pizza, trail mix, Netflix/Hulu, cheesecake, Marvel, Supernatural, rose gold, and summer!
My bucket list includes Wizarding World of Harry Potter, visiting Scotland and England where my family is from, attending a Steelers game, a PGA match, and moving to Tennessee.
I’m most happy when: It’s summertime! On a long drive with good music and the windows down, hiking in the woods, and sitting on the poarch petting doggys.
Why I started Off Color Rays: I think it’s important for all of us to have a basic knowledge of wellness so that we can begin to take care of ourselves and understand each other. Being healthy is not just about physical fitness and nutrition. It also includes your mental health.
