Psi Chi Officers


President- Vanessa Wells

Vanessa Wells is currently a senior Psychology major with a double minor in Sociology and ASL/Deaf Studies. She plans on going to graduate school to obtain a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Counseling. With that degree (and her Undergraduate specialties) she hopes to effectively advocate for the Deaf community and bring in Deaf clientele to whichever clinic she ends up at. It is her hope to end up either at a wonderful private practice that actively takes on pro bono work or crusade against the health insurance companies until they include mental health care in their current health care packages. Health care should ALWAYS involve mental and physical. In her spare time she likes to cosplay, hang out with her best friend Grace and sister Lacy, read loads of books and play video games with her boyfriend.


Fun Fact: It is said that Vanessa is a huge nerd due to her love of books, learning and cosplaying. Cosplay: verb; to dress up and act like your favorite book/movie/anime/comic book character.
