What would people be surprised to know about you?
I’ve lived in 4 states in the past 10 years! Georgia, Massachusetts, Oregon, and Michigan. School, internship, and a love of travel keep me moving.
Name a cause you are passionate about.
I have a few passions that rotate. At the moment my big one is helping the environment being more sustainable. In reality this isn’t an individual issue, rather an issue that needs to be discussed at a larger level with corporations. That being said, I try my hardest to encourage those around me to go more green! (No shade to U of M fans)
Why did you choose MSP?
Michigan School of Psychology celebrates diversity and differences in its staff and faculty which, in turn, brings forth students that reflect such. The holistic and humanistic approach that are the foundation of the program align with my work in music therapy and how I hope to continue as a clinician.
What do you plan to do with your degree?
My goal is to create a community center with a focus on intergenerational sharing, connections, and healing through creative arts with holistic clinicians. In the short term I hope to continue on at the Radical Well-Being Center and combine my music therapy background with the psychology skills I will gain.
