Honors Academic Success

 

Academic Success Graduate Assistant

The role of the Student Academic Success GA is to facilitate Honors students in achieving their academic goals. There are different kinds of barriers that can obstruct academic goals, such as not knowing how to study effectively for a course, or even things like lack of sleep or getting excessively nervous before a test. The Student Academic Success GA can help you navigate these barriers so that you can reach your academic goals!

Your current Academic Success GA is Stephanie Lindeman. Stephanie received her B.S. in Biology in 2013 at Elon University and was awarded her master's degree in Biomedical Science from the University of South Florida in 2016. After years of neuroscience research, she decided to transfer to the field of psychotherapy. Stephanie had the fortune to work under the supervision of the former USF professor, Dr. Eric Storch, at Rogers Behavioral Health, where she treated patients with OCD and OCD related disorders, anxiety disorders, mood disorders and personality disorders using CBT, ERP, and DBT-informed treatment. Stephanie is now enrolled in her second year at the University of South Florida pursuing a degree in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling.
