Women’s History Month – Featuring Nicole Herbig

Women’s History Month – Featuring Nicole Herbig

I am a mental health advocate and psychology professional. I have worked in the field of mental health for over two years in both an in-patient and in-home capacity. I will be earning my Masters of Science in Developmental Psychology in March 2020 as I continue to further my education. I graduated from Pillar College in 2018 as Valedictorian with my Bachelors in Counseling and Psychology.

When I was preparing for college I had preconceived expectations of what it meant to have “the college experience.” I wanted dorms, fancy coffee shops, and sororities. When I first visited Pillar College it was clear that it met none of these criteria. Instead, my eyes were opened to what seemed like an entirely unconventional school environment: a Christian college. Though I started my college career with some hesitations, Pillar College was one of the best decisions I ever made. Learning in a Christian environment allowed me to nurture my relationship with Christ, build lifelong relationships with like-minded individuals, and obtain an education from professors rooted firmly in my beliefs. Pillar College will always be home to some of my fondest memories and will forever be remembered as my second home. Without my time spent at Pillar College, I would not be the woman I am today.
