I am a counselor and social worker and have a master's degree in social work.
What inspires me
A person's capacity to survive and thrive. I believe we all have a great inner strength and voice and with help we can access it in a very powerful way.
How I stay healthy
I love to run. It's a great stress reliever and keeps me healthy. I recently ran my first marathon in Portland, Oregon!
Favorite place in the world
South America. I traveled to Argentina with my partner and fell in love with the culture. I would like to go back with our daughter and visit Peru and Chile as well. I believe that it is essential for my children to experience cultures beyond their own.
What I'm grateful for
The support of my family and my partner, Matt, allowed me to get my master's.
Chocolate and red wine—together or on their own!
Where I see myself in ten years
I hope to be part of a mental health and social services system that is more accessible to underserved populations.
Something you'd never guess about me
I have always wanted to learn how to play drums!
