I received my Bachelor's in Psychology at Eastern Illinois University and will be starting my Master's in Social Work in the fall at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.  I have ten years of experience working in behavioral health, eight of those at community based non-profit agencies.  I have experience with school-based counseling, crisis intervention, community support, and working collaboratively with Child Advocacy Center.

I enjoy trying new foods and hiking with my dog.  More recently, I've picked up playing pickleball with my family.
