Immediately prior to her current doctoral work, Samara Lipsky also completed a two year pre-doctoral research fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. She is not all about the work she does, of course; Samara also has a great appreciation for her Jewish heritage. She grew up on the Upper East Side of New York and graduated from a Modern Orthodox school, the Raman School. Later on, Samara served on the staff for the Union for Reform Judaism and as a Hebrew teacher at the Reform Temple Israel, also in her old neighborhood.
Even though her career is relatively new, it is already clear to most that Samara Lipsky has a significant psychological career behind her already. Currently a Ph.D candidate in the International Psychology program at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP), the reality is, that is pretty much just an exclamation point on what is already a pretty impressive career. She started with education, having earned a Bachelor’s Degree in business from Emory University’s Goizueta Business School and following that up with a Masters Degree in Psychology soon after.
