Meet Our Graduates
Ryan Nelson
“Philosophy major Ryan Nelson (Class of 2019) applies his dual degree in philosophy and psychology in his work as a Registered Behavior Technician in Kingsport. He works with children, primarily with autism, to provide the support and tools they need to live a gainful and happy life. He notes that his degrees have proved helpful “in learning the terminology” and providing a “solid theoretical foundation” that facilitated his mastery of the theories that he applies in his work with clients. He also notes that his background in philosophy has proven particularly helpful in his work with older clients, who are naturally curious and both stimulated and calmed by philosophical conversation. Ryan has the mind of scholar and the heart of a servant. We are proud of the good work that he does for his community.”
