What would people be surprised to know about you? 

I’ve performed in The Vagina Monologues in three separate productions of the play.

Name a cause you are passionate about.

I feel that the work being done to balance women’s roles and empower them as mothers and to support the infant/mother bond is beginning to be valued in its capacity to alleviate distress and improve satisfaction in life.

Why did you choose MSP?

I chose to attend MSP because this school felt like a natural fit with the alignment of values for the empowering of the individual and close, supportive structuring of academics in a cohort model.

What do you want to do with your degree?

I plan to return to my community to further working with populations concerned with women’s issues, post-partum and attachment concerns.

What is your plan for after graduation?

I plan to return to private practice for direct services provision and possibly reentering into academia and teaching as opportunities arise.
