Favorite Quote: “Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious … and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney

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.
