#TeamTuesday: Sometimes getting rejected from graduate school can open our eyes to new interests. After Ishan Williams completed her undergraduate degree in psychology from UNC-Chapel Hill, she applied to a industrial organizational psychology graduate program, but she didn’t get in. Instead, she took a job at nearby Wake Forest Medical Center helping a geriatrician with research interviews and data analysis. Around the same time, she and her mom became a caregiver to her grandmother. Those experiences inspired Ishan’s interest in family caregivers to older adults with chronic diseases, particularly in vulnerable populations who aren’t as aware of community resources. She ultimately completed a PhD and postdoctoral fellowship focused on aging and caregiving. She now teaches in three different graduate programs within the UVA School of Nursing while continuing her research on chronic illness and mental health among older adults and their caregivers. Ishan says she always embraced the opportunity to learn something new, a philosophy she shares with her students. Ishan’s husband is part of the U.Va. Curry School of Education faculty, and they have three children.
