Meg Jay is a clinical psychologist, an author, and a speaker who specializes in twentysomethings. She is a clinical assistant professor at the University of Virginia and maintains a private practice in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The Defining Decade
Drawing from more than ten years of work with hundreds of twentysomething clients and students, Dr. Jay weaves the science of the twentysomething years with compelling, behind-closed-doors stories from twentysomethings themselves. She shares what psychologists, sociologists, neurologists, reproductive specialists, human resources executives, and economists know about the unique power of our twenties and how they change our lives. The result is a provocative and sometimes poignant read that shows us why our twenties do matter. Our twenties are a time when the things we do–and the things we don’t do–will have an enormous effect across years and even generations to come.
