Favorite Quote: “The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.” Albert Ellis
What would people be surprised to know about you?
I have a larger family with triplet siblings who I adore and who motivate me to be the best mental health professional I am able to be.
Name a cause you are passionate about.
I have a newly founded, but strong passion in advocating for those who have lived and continue to live under oppression of any kind; becoming more active in social justice and in my community will be the door or gateway leading to the overall goal.
Why did you chose MSP?
I earned my MA at MSP. From the first day I walked in until the end of the one school year I spent at MSP, I was shown countless reasons for furthering my education at MSP specifically. The growful experiences I personally had only added to my decision to stay.
What do you plan to do with your degree?
Once I have obtained my PsyD, I currently plan to continue work in the clinical scene of the psychological field, hopefully finding a job doing individual and group psychotherapy at a hospital, nonprofit organization, or some other clinical setting.
