Annie Besterman obtained her M.S. in Clinical Psychology from Loyola University Maryland in 2018. She has a wide variety of clinical (e.g., neuropsychological assessment with children) and research (e.g., efficacy of various forensic assessment measures for use with adolescent populations) experience in psychology. In addition, while working on her Master’s, Annie served as a mobile outreach worker with adults and children with various psychological illnesses. She also has contributed to research relating to the social stigma associated with mental illness. During an externship in her Master’s program, Annie completed neuropsychological, forensic and behavioral assessments, which ultimately led to her interest and passion in the assessment process. Annie’s favorite part of working in this field is to ensure every child has the opportunity to feel empowered through understanding their strengths and challenges and how to use their strengths to assist them.
Annie was born and raised in the DMV area and in her free time, enjoys spending time with her friends and family and exploring the ever-changing area around her. During the warmer months, you will find her near water whenever possible.
