Jennifer Drapkin

Jennifer Drapkin, M.S., is a first-year doctoral student in clinical psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University. She received her B.A. in psychology from Yale University, her M.S. in journalism from Columbia School of Journalism, and her yoga instructor certification from Laughing Lotus College of Yoga in New York City. As writer and editor, Jennifer has been published extensively in Psychology Today, The Smithsonian, and Mental_floss Magazine. As a yoga instructor, she's taught at the Urban Yoga Foundation and in New York City public schools, specializing in kindergarten through 5th grade. Jennifer believes that a good life should be divided between enjoying the world and saving the world, if you're doing too much of either one, then you're missing something. She's thrilled to have the opportunity to study the connection between mind, body, and spirit at Columbia. Jennifer hopes that by building better inner worlds, we can build better outer worlds, too.
