I have worked in a state correctional facility as a licensed psychologist for 9 years and managed the outpatient mental health clinic for 900 incarcerated individuals. During my time there I was selected to be in the National Health Service Corps. I have also maintained a successful private practice. I love the warm atmosphere at Northwest and it is a joy to work with students. My interests include traveling, cooking, tea, chocolate, and spending time with my family!
