Deja Buckner began her journey in the field of psychology by attending The University of North Carolina at Greensboro for undergraduate studies, earning a B.A. in psychology. During undergrad she excelled in rigorous coursework, social science research, joined clubs, and engaged in community service work. Currently, she is in the final year of the Master’s degree in the Clinical Psychology program at North Carolina
Central University. Deja has a dual interest in clinical work and research which drives her to pursue doctoral-level training upon completing her master’s degree to ultimately
become a Clinical Health Psychologist. As a psychologist in training, Deja is most interested in understanding how psychological, behavioral, cultural, and lifestyle factors
impact mental health and overall cognitive functioning as well as contribute to physical health and illness. While at NCCU, Deja spearheaded a health disparities research
initiative using the biopsychosocial model to examine the influence of lifestyle factors on people of color residing in rural communities. She hopes to continue engaging in this
caliber of work, centered on positively effecting change in people’s lives throughout the course of her professional career. During her free time, Deja enjoys travel, health & fitness, and all things beauty and fashion! She uses her virtual presence on her social media platform to encourage and inspire women from all backgrounds to embrace their individuality, aesthetic excellence, and unique journey through life.
