Hi! I’m Amber Bobnar and I founded this website in 2010. I’ve always been interested in psychology and planned for a career in academia (ABD, Tufts University), but life sometimes has other plans.
When my son was born in 2005 with severe developmental disabilities and medical complexities, my focus changed dramatically. I would now consider myself first and foremost a caregiver. I care for my son and manage his medical appointments and educational goals (you can read more about that here). I also care for my father who is diagnosed with PTSD and vascular dementia. Much of my time has also been spent helping my brother who has struggled with mental illness.
I am still very interested in psychology and have learned so much caring for my family and through my own reading and research. This website is a way to share what I have learned and to help others who are interested in continuing their own educational and career goals. I also work with a team of experts to create practical guides for students and informative content for our readers.
