Name: Trish Balbert
Prior Work: Actor
Current Work: Clinical Psychology

What inspired you to take the “Discover Remarkable Work” Program?

Being a (usually) passionate person, I knew that something was “off” when it came to a career in acting. I loved collaborating and performing, but I had no drive to pursue the business. I wanted to feel that energized enthusiasm for something — anything — but didn’t even know how to begin looking for it.

What is your plan for the future?

I plan to finish my Master’s and become a PhD candidate in Clinical Psychology, during which I look forward to participating in clinical studies and publishing papers. After school, I will re-open my private practice and work with individuals both one-on-one and in groups.

How did the program help you most?

The program allowed me to discover things about myself, my family, and my belief system that I never would have realized otherwise. It also helped me to healthily grieve my “former life” in order to move towards a more fulfilling present reality.

What is the best advice you can give to someone trying to find their calling or discover their dream job?

You don’t have to settle. Anyone can discover passionate work and make it happen. It won’t be easy, but it will be the best thing you can do for yourself
