Graduate and Doctoral and International Admissions Counselor
Aurora chose to earn her degree through APU because of the university’s active learning model and to be a part of a psychology program that encouraged learning beyond the classroom. Currently she is using her degree to assist others achieve their educational goals. She is also teaching classes and running workshops that emphasize art as an implement for social change and personal awareness.
In an effort to maintain sanity while she is wading through her Ph. D. in Psychology with an emphasis in Expressive Arts, Aurora immerses herself in painting and shows her work around Anchorage. Every winter she rediscovers her love for ice skating and in the summertime makes the most of the sunlight by reading by the lake at midnight or going for a bike ride. Two of her favorite inventions are glitter and comic strips.
