What would people be surprised to know about you? 

I packed my tiny car completely full and moved to Seattle, just to move back to Michigan a year later.

Name a cause you are passionate about.

I love helping people reach their full potential and help them become as independent as possible. I am also interested in parent training for individuals with autism.

Why did you choose MSP?

I chose this school for the humanistic approach to psychology and for the small campus size. I came from Michigan State so sure excited to be at a school where I feel closer to all my classmates.

What do you plan to do with your degree?

I want to go on to earn my doctorate in psychology and take the exam to become a BCBA. I would like to focus on parent training or parent counseling for children with autism or other disabilities.

What is your plan after graduation?

I plan on gaining more experience in the field and working as a supervisor at an ABA clinic. I then want to go back to school and earn a doctorate degree.
