Today I’m excited to welcome Dr Caitlin Faas to The Quarter Life Comeback podcast.

Dr Caitlin Faas is an assistant professor of psychology and an experienced career coach for young adults who has spent the last decade studying a field known as emerging adulthood.

As a psychology professor, Dr Faas has a great understanding of why human beings make the choices we do, and why we either succeed or flounder in our attempts to create a meaningful career.

Her mission is to help provide the guidance every young adult needs to make sound career decisions that will lay the foundations for a successful, fulfilling life.

This is the first time I’ve spoken to a doctor on the show and I was really excited to get on the call with someone who actually studies the science behind life in our twenties!
