I was born and raised in Greenville, Texas. I completed a three-year Bachelor of Science degree from LeTourneau University in Christian Ministry with a concentration on Cross-Cultural Studies in May of 2016. I minored in Biblical Studies and Psychology as well, in hopes of continuing my Psychology education. I am currently working to earn my Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at LeTourneau University. My husband also attends LeTourneau and is studying Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering. I also serve at LeTourneau as a Graduate Resident Director for Gilbert Hall, an all-women’s residence hall on campus.
I became interested in the field of Psychology through a family crisis that occurred in my last year living at home before college. Through this period of time, I developed a deep passion for understanding people and families. What further sparked my interest in Psychology was an undergraduate course: Marriage and the Family. This compelled me to consider a higher-level degree in counseling. In my time at LeTourneau, I have learned through relationships, coursework, and Scripture what it looks like to live holistically. I have a desire to help individuals work toward great potential psychologically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, relationally, and physically. It is clear that we are made to have relationship and community, and it is through these aspects of life that we can navigate how to have healthy community.
