I always knew I wanted to work with people in some capacity, as I find myself happiest while building connections and helping others feel empowered to achieve their goals. I graduated from Villanova University with a degree in Psychology and minors in Cognitive Science and Criminal Justice. I spent two years providing therapy for co-occurring disorders before transitioning to serve as a probation officer in a Drug Treatment Court. Most recently, I was the coordinator of a pre-trial court program that targeted the gap in treatment between arrest and sentencing for opiate users. By intervening quickly to connect these individuals with clinical care, we significantly decreased their risk for overdose. I am looking forward to working in the field after a brief hiatus to stay home and raise my two toddler girls!
I grew up in Colorado, I’m an avid skier, and I still enjoy being outdoors with my family as much as possible. I lived in London for a bit in my childhood and studied abroad in Chile. I love immersing myself in new cultures and scouting out the best restaurants wherever our travels take us.
