Sara (Wilkomm) Held, '11, M.S. Candidate in Community Counseling

Sara (Wilkomm) Held graduated from the History Department in 2011, after publishing her senior thesis, "A Movement Without A Face: Anonymity and the Push for Women's Rights in 1800s America," in the Oshkosh Scholar journal. She is now pursuing her master's degree, and a career in community counseling.


1) What career or course of study are you in right now?

I am 3/4 of the way done in the Community Counseling program. I am applying for the Psych doc program come this fall (so fingers crossed!)

2) How does your history major help you in this career or course of study?

My end goal has always been to be a Professor, which was inspired by the Professors I had at UWO. I also took a wide variety of classes at UWO which gave me a solid foundation prior to coming here.

3) Do you have any advice for current history majors who will be on the job market soon?

My advice would be think outside the box. You never know where your degree could take you!
