I have worked with adolescents for the past 8 years in various capacities, from juvenile diversion, working as a behavioral health specialist in a psychiatric hospital, to case management for children and families in the foster care system. I have a bachelor’s in criminal justice. These experiences have allowed me to gain exposure to a variety of diagnoses and situations. I love this field because it allows you to think outside the box, specializing care for each person. I have always believed that you need to be the change you want to see in the world. Outside of work, my pride and joy are my three dogs. We absolutely love being outdoors, exploring, swimming, hiking, camping, and overall just admiring nature’s beauty.
