Erin DeBrota, founder of Personality Science, utilizes a scientific approach to counseling individuals in career and educational decisions. She has developed and administers a distinctive battery of career, interest, temperament, and values assessments to help her clients find their best career fit or educational direction. Clients learn more about themselves and the career directions in which they will be satisfied and happy. Her “whole person” approach is unique to the industry.
Ms. DeBrota meets one-on-one with clients from all over the United States to discuss their personalized analysis, and prepares a thorough, written report for their reference. Clients have the luxury of taking their assessments at home and online, and meetings can take place via Skype, telephone, or in person. She helps clients in most phases of life, beginning around age 16, and works with high school and college students, in addition to all adults looking for their best career fit or a new direction. She has made multiple presentations to student groups, parent groups, and school counselors.
Ms. DeBrota is a Phi Beta Kappa and Cum Laude graduate of Purdue University with a B.A. in Communication. She received her Master of Science degree in Adult Education from Indiana University, with a focus in neuropsychology. She has had additional training in the administration and interpretation of many vocational, personality, and values assessments, is a Keirsey Certified Temperament Professional, and is a certified Myers-Briggs practitioner. Prior to starting Personality Science, she worked in marketing with a major Indianapolis-based company, and then spent time focusing on her family.
