What would people be surprised to know about you? 

I am a very crafty person. I am a metalsmith and enjoy woodworking, home renovation projects, rock painting, and crochet. I usually have multiple projects going at the same time.

Name a cause you are passionate about.

I am passionate about treating the whole family in an ABA treatment setting instead of focusing on the client’s programming.

Why did you choose MSP?

MSP has provided a home for me. Here I know I can be supported by my peers and that they will push me to do my best, and they can rely on me to do the same. For me, attending MSP for my doctoral program was a clear choice.

What do you want to do with your degree?

With the support of MSP, I am pursuing both my PsyD and BCBA-D. I hope to blend these tool sets to provide the best care for my clients.

What is your plan for after graduation?

I hope to continue on into private practice and to give back to this community by guiding other students with similar passions.
