I am passionate about helping people, and I am fortunate to be able to do so through teaching, counseling, mentoring, and psychology based drama-therapy. In my free time I enjoy riding my horse, and being a positive advocate for social justice issues. I love animals and serve as faculty adviser for HATS of CMU (Humane Animal Treatment Society).
