Kadija Moon Named July Holmes Scholar of the Month

Kadija MoonCongratulations to Kadija Moon, recent Holmes alumna of the University of Houston and Holmes Scholar of the Month for July 2021. Recently, Moon successfully defended her dissertation titled, “The Bidirectionality of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Sleep Disturbances among Firefighters with Military Veteran Status” and earned her PhD in Counseling Psychology.

Prior to attending TCU, Moon completed both her Bachelor of Science in psychology with a minor in human development and family studies and her master of education in counseling at the University of Houston. Moon has also interned at the Michael E Debakey VA Medical Center, the Harris County Juvenile Probation Department (HCJPD), Houston Fire Department, and the Krist Samaritan Counseling Center.

Her research interest includes military members, veterans, and their families. More specifically, she desires to aid in helping dependents understand and better cope with the strenuous life of having a parent/spouse/immediate family member deployed to a war zone and subsequently reintegrating back into the home front.

Congratulations, Kadija Moon!
