What would people be surprised to know about you?
I know a ridiculous amount about coffee, and I roast my own coffee.
Name a cause you are passionate about.
I am passionate about mental health awareness and ending the stigma surrounding seeking treatment for mental health conditions. I tied this passion into my obsession with coffee and turned it into a blog, which is still in its very early stages.
Why did you choose MSP?
I learned about MSP from a coworker and current student as I was looking for programs that would be a good fit for me starting in the fall of 2022. The more I researched, the more it seems like a good fit for me, and I was just in time for the last application deadline, so I figured I would try it and see what happens.
What do you plan to do with your degree/certificate?
I want to work one-on-one with patients as a therapist.
