People may be surprised to know that I worked as a phlebotomist and was on track to begin a BSN program before transitioning to my education and career in psychology.

Name a cause you are passionate about.

I am passionate about integrating multicultural psychology, social justice, and providing trauma-informed care to those impacted by trauma.

Why did you choose MSP?

I chose MSP because of my wonderfully unique and enriching experience during the MA program, as well as MSP’s values in humanistic psychology, community outreach, and social justice.

What do you plan to do with your degree?

My goal is to own my own private practice and wellness center.
