My background includes working in a therapeutic foster agency with foster youth, families, and treatment teams. I have a M.Ed. in School Counseling from Eastern Kentucky University where I also completed courses for Mental Health Counseling and Play Therapy. I have a BS in IECE-SEEC Special Education with a minor in Child and Family Studies. I have worked with children and parents in multiple settings; youth programs, church, daycares, schools, libraries, and therapeutic environments.

In my free time I enjoy books, movies, kayaking, hiking, and spending time with my dog, family, and friends.
