Bio: Born in Bloomsburg, PA and raised in northeastern Pennsylvania for most of my childhood, I grew up playing all kinds of sports. I found that volleyball was the perfect fit, given my height and competitive personality. I attended Marshall University in Huntington, WV and played Division I volleyball for the Thundering Herd for almost four years. I ultimately made a major decision to stop playing volleyball and transferred my senior year to West Virginia University to be closer to family and finish my degree as a non-student athlete. Playing, coaching, and teaching volleyball while at Marshall University, helped me to further pursue advanced education in a helping profession. 

Shortly after graduation, I began a Masters degree in counseling and obtained a graduate assistantship within the Mindfit Clinic, an entity within CCPPS. I also completed both practicum/internship at the Carruth Center. Upon finishing my Masters degree in 2012, I was fortunate enough to get hired at CCPPS as a Behavioral Health Therapist. My position has shifted from a supervised to now licensed counselor, and also from Assistant Coordinator of Mindfit Clinic to Groups Coordinator to my current title as Masters Training Coordinator. I am most passionate about my title as Masters Training Coordinator. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to train, teach, and help incoming graduate students sharpen their clinical skills.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and little girl (soon to be two little girls in October), watching classic movies, laughing, taking long walks, and listening to music.
