Meaningful Coincidences:
An Early Career Retrospective

Stories stimulate us to revisit our own narratives and imagine how we might navigate difficult situations in the future. Dr. Kilmartin has been teaching psychology for 27 years and is about to retire. This presentation is a retrospective from his early career, which seemed to be a series of meaningful coincidences that shaped his occupational journey. Listeners will respond by revisiting their own stories and anticipating the pathways that might reveal themselves in their careers.
