Applicant Submission Form: Dr. Brunner's Office 


From Grace Weigel, UA Senior and Current Assistant to Dr. Thomas Brunner

Working as an assistant to Dr. Brunner has been an amazing opportunity. By being immersed in the daily operations of an innovative psychology practice, I gained real-world insight into the field of psychology. In this position I was able to refine my professionalism and organizational skills as well as further develop my ability to navigate tasks with precision and independence. The accommodating nature of this position has allowed me to manage my academic responsibilities and graduate school applications while working part-time. Dr. Brunner’s excellent mentorship has provided me with a fulfilling job experience that has helped prepare me for my future career. 


From Kayleigh Cook, UA graduate and previous Assistant to Dr. Thomas Brunner 

Being the administrative assistant for Dr. Brunner was the perfect transition out of my undergraduate career. This position gave me the amazing opportunity to hone my administrative, communication and organizational skills, all of which are necessary for success in most jobs, but especially when you are going into a career in research and academia. Dr. Brunner has been supportive and flexible when needed, and he understands that his assistant has many responsibilities outside of the office. He also has allowed me to give my creative input on a wide variety of office systems, which has allowed me to help things run more smoothly while gaining experience with different software and programs. This experience has undoubtedly been what will separate me from other candidates moving forward in my career


 From Elsa Bautista, UA graduate and previous Assistant to Dr. Thomas Brunner 

As a past assistant, I wanted to share my experience working for Dr. Brunner and his family. Dr. Brunner treated me with the utmost kindness and respect throughout my time with his practice. I had the pleasure of interacting and building relationships with clients and their families. I learned the intricacies of a Clinical and Forensics Psychologist office. I was able to see how the knowledge I learned inside of my psychology courses related to psychological practice. 

Dr. Brunner was extremely understanding during my college career, thus enabling me to complete a double major and double minor all while still working part time. Dr. Brunner became a great mentor to me and his vast connections in the Tucson community helped me propel my own career aspirations forward. I worked alongside Dr. Brunner for nearly two years before finally graduating from the University of Arizona. Since graduation Dr Brunner has remained an invaluable mentor.
