What would people be surprised to know about you? 

I like to ride my motorcycle for fun and can’t resist a good audiobook.

Name a cause you are passionate about.

I’ve always been passionate about women’s rights. The last few years I’ve felt especially passionate about postpartum care and the societal expectations of women.

Why did you choose MSP?

I chose MSP because I identify with the humanistic approach, and it allows me to pursue my goal of becoming an LP while living with my husband and two young children.

What do you want to do with your degree?

My goal is to work in private practice with special attention to new mothers and young families.

How did you first get interested in the mental health profession?

My very first psychology class had me hooked, although it’s safe to say I have always been interested in what contributes to who we become.
