Samara Lipsky on Psychological Diversity

Samara LipskyIt can be simply said that Samara Lipsky draws strength from her Jewish heritage and she has also been very protective of it.Frankly, however, her chosen career in psychology also has had a major impact on her life so far. Samara currently is a Ph.D candidate at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP), in their International Psychology program. This educational journey comes after she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in business from the Goizueta Business School at Emory University in Atlanta and went on to earn a Masters Degree in Psychology from the same school.

Obviously, “just” having a Master’s Degree wasn’t enough for Samara Lipsky, given that she also completed a two-year predoctoral research fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center before moving on to TCSPP to earn her Doctorate. All of this comes because Samara Lipsky wanted to establish a strong and useful career as a psychologist. That has paid off for Samara Lipsky; she has won a number of awards and accolades in the field. Among her more recent accomplishments are her co-founding of a non-profit organization dedicated to helping fund and raise awareness for medically oriented organizations.

Getting back to her Jewish heritage, Samara Lipsky has always been proud of that. When she was growing up on the Upper East Side of New York City, she and her family nurtured that. She graduated from the Modern Orthodox Raman School and she later went on to serve as a staff member with the Union for Reform Judaism. She has also been a Hebrew teacher at the Reform Temple Israel, back in her old neighborhood. Not only that, but she also has tutored a large number of young Jewish bar and bat mitzvah students.
