“I didn’t always want to become a psychologist.” That is the way Dr. Jennifer Mangels began her interview. For someone who was not sure what career path to follow while in college, she has not done badly at all.

A native of Morristown, New Jersey, she obtained her bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware and a doctorate in psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. Today she is a professor and chair in the Department of Psychology of the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College.
