I grew up in Southern California and made the decision to move to Northern Arizona to pursue a degree in BioMed. My entire life, I thought I was going to become a pediatrician -- but life had other plans for me. I had a small identity crisis when I had to come to terms with the fact that I was not going to become a doctor like I had planned for 10+ years. I found myself loving my psychology course and changed my major. I loved psychology and knew I wanted to do more with it. After receiving my bachelor's at NAU, I decided to pursue my Master's in therapy back in Southern California at University of La Verne. I love working with kids, that did not change from when I thought I was going to be a pediatrician. I am a huge sports fan, love traveling, and the outdoors.
