Skye Bryant (she/hers)

Hi! My name is Skye Bryant (she/hers) and I'm in my fourth quarter of Seattle University's school psychology EdS graduate program. Before becoming a full-time graduate student, I worked as a certified behavior technician and helped support children, youth, and young adults with a variety of educational, behavioral, and socio-emotional needs. I'm looking forward to becoming a supportive team member in a school community as a school psychologist. 

I became interested in this area of practice because I've always gravitated towards educational spaces and working with youth. I also want to become a school psychologist because it's a dynamic profession in the ways in which it can support children, adolescents, and their families. Professionally, I'm also looking forward to hosting school psychology students, leading MTSS professional development workshops, and facilitating student LGBTQIA+ clubs.

Kelly Anne Jacka

My educational background is in marketing and fine arts; I currently manage a fine art frame shop, handling art for galleries, museums, and corporate/private collections. I discovered the field of school psychology through my desire to work with high school kids and work in mental health. I chose to pursue the career because it ties together my passion for helping others, creative problem solving, social justice, collaboration, and leadership. I am excited about being in a field that is changing and expanding as it aims to meet the needs of and support all students. My current goal is to work toward my doctorate after some time practicing in schools.

Hello! My name is Jenny (she/her) and I am currently in my second year heading into practicum. I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology at the UW Seattle and worked as a certified behavior technician after graduating. I worked one-on-one with students in the school setting and in the home setting. I absolutely love working with children and seeing them grow! I look forward to working as a school psychologist and being an advocate for all students. During my free time, I enjoy playing with my nephews and trying new foods! Please reach out with any questions you may have.

I am currently in my internship year of the School Psychology program here at Seattle University. I chose to pursue school psychology because I love the multifacetedness and flexibility that comes with this career. You can take an individualized approach with each, and every student based on their learning needs - which is not only the most effective way of supporting their ​education, but it also allows you to become the best advocate for each individual child. I want to put myself in a position to create safe and equitable school environments through promoting change and culturally responsive practices.

Alyssa Sismaet

Hi, my name is Alyssa. I was accepted into the program and am starting fall 2022. I am eager to become a school psychologist and help students get the resources they need. I got my undergraduate degree in psychology, so I am excited to build on my knowledge and skills. I have lived in the area my whole life, so I am excited to give back to the community. Outside of my professional goals, I love spending time with my dog Waffle, eating new food, and traveling.

Natalie Wong

I am a pre-practicum student in the School Psychology program and started Winter quarter 2021. My passion to become a School Psychologist has stemmed from my own first-hand experiences. I have personally struggled with my own learning disabilities and neurodivergence throughout my life. Through this, I developed a passion around advocacy, assessment, and accommodations to serve students with both visible and invisible disabilities. Presently, I work at a private school in the Seattle area, serving as a Test Coordinator and Admin for students with disabilities. I am excited to delve into a new role in this same field as I enter practicum, internship, and employment after graduation.
