Katelyn Adams


Katelynn Adams graduated from Carson-Newman University with a BA in Psychology in 2020. She is currently planning to turn her BA into a BSN to become a psychiatrist. Katelynn is from Chattanooga, Tennessee. She has worked in the field of psychology ranging from foster care, case management, and providing services to individuals that suffer from Mental and physical disabilities.  Katelynn is currently a Resident Director and Coordinator of access and inclusion at Maryville College. She is an advisor for Black Student alliance and Alana scholars, a program for BIOPIC students on campus. My Platform is Mental Health in Marginalized communities, Katelynn’s non-profit focus is to provide free or reduced mental health services in low-income areas to people of color and undocumented citizens in the United States. Katelynn has found her passion in mental health due to her own pervious personal struggles mentally and spiritually as well as her friends who have struggled. She believes that discussing these struggles, one can discover the strength that they hold inside of them and pour into someone else’s “cup”. Katelynn found the power of words and therapy by one of her favorite Authors, Maya Angelou who says, “There is no greater agony than carrying an untold story inside of you”.
