art therapy

Hello all, My name is Quortni Moore, I am 22 years old as of TODAY (February 1st)introduction-photo. So now I can proudly blast Taylor Swift’s “22” and not feel weird about it. I am a Junior here at Fontbonne. This is actually my second semester here, I am a transfer student from Indiana State University but I am originally from Saint Louis. I chose ISU originally because it seemed like a great fit at the time, but after some unexpected life changes it became clear to me that it was a great time to come home and transfer to a University that was a better fit for the time being. I am a Psychology major and also pursuing a minor in Biology, I originally was minoring in Art but when I transferred I realized that Biology is something that I felt was calling me. Science had always been an interest of mine and I felt that it would be a great combination with Psychology. I plan on attending graduate school after graduation, but if you ask me where and what I plan on doing in graduate school, I honestly couldn’t tell you. I know for sure that I would like to go into some sort of research, and eventually become a therapist and eventually earn a certificate to practice Art Therapy.

I am currently employed at Saint Louis Bread Company, the one right down the street from campus. I have been there since I was 16, so it will be 6 years in May, so don’t be afraid to come on in and say hello. I am also employed at Journeys Shoes in the Galleria, because lets be honest I LOVE shoes. Again don’t be shy, come on in and say hello, I would be Happy to sell you your favorite pair of shoes. (:

My hobbies include arts and crafts, mostly drawing and painting random gifts for friends and family, I also love yoga and taking my 2 dogs on long walks around the neighborhood. I also like to occasionally go Ice Skating… fun fact I used to be a competitive Figure Skater at Brentwood Ice Arena where I competed solo and on a synchronized team for 10 years. I have since retired but I still have my skates and love to go back to Brentwood and hit the ice. Other hobbies include Snapchat of course because who doesn’t love taking selfies. And my by far favorite thing to do is post up at your local Starbucks and do homework.

Please don’t hesitate to say hello if you see me around, I don’t know many people here at Fontbonne but I am all for making new friends and study buddies.

The summer has begun! For many of us that means picking up extra hours at work, taking summer classes if need be, and trying to squeeze a little fun into the long, warm days. My little bit of fun this year coincides with my search for the right master’s program. In the last three years, I have plowed through my associates, jumped right into my bachelors, and with any luck, I’ll head right into my master’s after graduation. As someone in pursuit of an Art Therapy degree, finding the right master’s program can be tricky and limiting. The job market in the area of license must be considered, otherwise that license is just a fancy piece of paper. I’ve done plenty of research and, in a few short days, will be heading up to San Francisco! I’ve never been to northern California so this trip is especially exciting.

Setting up a tour with the college was very easy, and the informational packet they sent me reminded me a lot of Fontbonne. It’s a small, private college as well and emphasizes small class sizes to give a higher quality instruction to the students. This is very important to me because I feel like small classes really do work the best. I’ll have to take the price of the college into account as well as earning any possible scholarships. Drowning in debt to achieve my goal is not exactly at the top of my list. Checking out the program that they offer in my major is the most important thing. I want to make sure that they offer what I need to become licensed and an effective Art Therapist.

It won’t all be tours and checklists though. Northern California and San Francisco especially, offers so much to do! From Chinatown and the Warf, to the Golden Gate Park, Haight and Ashbury, and amazing seafood I doubt I will have a dull moment downtown. I will also be crossing hugging a redwood tree off my bucket list. Redwoods are an iconic symbol of the west coast and I feel like everyone should have the opportunity to stand in awe of those majestic trees. There will also be plenty of chill time on the beach and, hopefully, in front of a fire pit with a great bottle of wine. I’ll be sure to give a full report next week! Cheers!!

There are many of us here at Fontbonne that have the responsibility of full time school, plus a job on top of that. Finding a good one, or at the very least one you don’t loath, can be tricky. As someone that has had three different part time jobs since going back to school, I can tell you that while it may seem impossible there are some very useful tools to help make everything from resume writing to job searching a lot easier.

One of the most useful tools (or people rather) I have found right here at Fontbonne is our career councilor, Christine Keller — she is a fountain of information! She helped me polish my resume to fit more of what I was looking for, offered some great resources for writing a cover letter, and gave me some suggestions on where to look for a job. All I had to do was make an appointment with her, bring the resume I had, and tell her what type of job I’m looking for. As someone going into Art Therapy I’m really looking to work as an admin assistant in a doctors or psychologists office. Getting into these positions is the challenge so anything that makes it easier, or makes me stand out more is beyond helpful.

There are several places you can go to look for a job as well. Fontbonne has a job page here:

www.fontbonne.edu/jobs

I have also found Indeed.com, Craigslist (yes Craigslist), the local hospitals, and even the Yellow Pages to be great tools to find prospective employment. There will be rejection letters, those should be taken in stride, because the job that is the right fit for you will come your way at the right time. Just keep up the determination until you find what you’re looking for! Or until it finds you 😉

Cheers!
