I was born in Florida and studied psychology there before my graduate school journey brought me to Texas. I gained experience completing practicum training in a variety of settings but found the most meaning and personality fit when working with college students. After completing my pre-doctoral internship and graduating in August 2019, I started working as a supervised staff psychologist at Carruth Center for Psychological and Psychiatric Services (CCPPS).


Outside of work, I typically spend my time connecting with friends and family, reading, baking, playing with my dog and cat, and going on walks while listening to audiobooks and podcasts.
