I completed my undergraduate Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and Psychology in 2007, form Minnesota State University- Moorhead. Soon after, I began working as a Behavior Therapist at an Autism day treatment facility for children and adolescents. Having a desire to relocate, I found myself accepting a position as a Psychometrist at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Most recently, I continue working as a Psychometrist with Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare, but also as a Neuopsychological Behavioral Health Intervention Specialist. In December of 2019, I graduated with a Master of Arts Degree in psychotherapy and counseling, with an emphasis in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adler Graduate School. I have had the honor of completing internships with Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge focusing once again on addiction and chemical dependency, as well as The Walk-in Counseling Center which provides free counseling services to those in our community.
