Dr. Jennifer Carter: Leadership, Wellness & Balance

April 23, 2019
7:00-8:30 pm, Agnes Jeffrey Shedd Theater

Dr. Jennifer Carter is a counseling psychologist, specializing in sport psychology and eating disorders. A former competitive swimmer and volleyball player, Dr. Carter has always been interested in the psychology of performance - how to assist performers with their ‘mental game.’ She also wants to help individuals find meaning and freedom by learning to value strength of body, heart and mind. For Dr. Carter, it’s not about giving advice -- it’s about helping unlock a client’s inner wisdom. All CSG parents are invited to learn more about the balance between leadership and wellness and how it is important not just for our students, but for all of us.
