I have lived and worked in Columbus, IN my entire life. I taught second grade at St. Bartholomew School for 11 years. This position allowed me to pursue my love of children, teaching, and growing personally and professionally. While teaching, I obtained my Master's degree in School Counseling. My professional goals then led me into mental health where I worked as a case manager and life skills trainer at Centerstone, a behavioral, mental health center. During my time there, I began pursuing my Mental Health Counseling License and became a therapist at Centerstone, working with children and families. While reflecting on my own professional experiences, I realized that working with others to achieve their goals and to help someone reach their full potential is something that I am passionate about. As an Academic Advisor at IUPUC, I assist and collaborate with students so they can reach their goals and achieve successes.
