Counseling experience:

I have spent time working both in schools and agency settings. In schools, I worked primarily with at-risk adolescents. My agency work has focused on treating families and individuals of all ages who have been victims of domestic violence.


I am happy to be back in my hometown of Winston-Salem after several years away. For fun, I enjoy music, cooking, traveling and spending time with friends and family. Most weekends, I can be found hiking or camping with my sweet pup, Roscoe.
