Natalie A. Drozda MA

Inpatient Counselor/ Ph.D Student, Gateway Rehab/ Duquesne University

Natalie A. Drozda received her master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Slippery Rock University where she also completed a graduate assistantship in the Gender Studies Program. This assistantship inspired her master’s thesis, which investigates how outwardly successful women story their success within a gendered society. She has since revisited this project for publication. She has presented at statewide, national, and international conferences on various topics including autism, multiculturalism, women's issues, teaching diversity courses to majority culture students, and international counseling work. Currently, she is pursuing her PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision at Duquesne University and plans to continue to focus her scholarship on gender, mental health, autism, disabilities, wellness, and multiculturalism.
