Carina Turner has worked with the Women’s Center this year through the new Survivor Advocacy Program as a peer advocate. Carina is a senior studying psychology, and is very interested in child psychology. Next fall she will be a graduate student at Loyola University Chicago, pursuing a Masters of Education and an Education Specialist Degree in School Psychology.

Carina is an involved student at Ohio University, serving as a research assistant with the psychology department, a Templeton Scholar, and a member of service organization SPARC, which is currently planning its second annual Memorial Day Weekend volunteer trip to New Orleans. In her free time, Carina enjoys singing, watching movies with friends, reading forensic mystery novels, and cooking with her Mom and younger sister.

Carina’s favorite Women’s Center event is the International Women’s Day Festival, and she said she loves being surrounded by so many strong women at the center. “I love being a part of a collection of people who are all passionate about what they do,” she said. “All of us have different interests, but we all seem to be very dedicated to our work with the Women’s Center and not afraid to speak our minds.”

Fun fact about Carina: “In high school I traveled to the Bahamas with my school choir for a vocal competition…in addition to winning everything, we also snuck onto the beach at the Atlantis resort and rode the banana boats!!”
