As vice chair of the Applied Psychology program, Professor Kelly Bushéy joined Hodges University in 2008. As a nationally certified counselor, she is one of less than 1,500 in the United States to be a distance credentialed counselor. Her extensive experience also makes her one of only 10 individuals in Florida to have the designation of authorized instructor for the Taylor-Johnson Temperament Analysis, and she is able to provide counselor certification training.
She specializes in working with diverse cultures and has spent more than 20 years volunteering with the Warrior Leadership Summit. In 2013, she was recognized as an associate member of the National Congress for American Indians due to her extensive work with Alaskan Native and American Indian youth.
Before her arrival at Hodges, Bushéy’s professional experience included serving as the executive director of a Boys and Girls Club; a hospice community relations specialist; a clinical supervisor at Summit University’s Campus Counseling Center; and a behavioral specialist and mobile therapist for Lackawanna County Youth Advocate program. She also practiced private counseling and served as a motivational speaker and photojournalist.
