She graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.

I believe that God intended us to be in relationships with others and Himself. My passion and the burden that I believe God has put on my heart is for my community. I desire to see our local communities grow and come together with a common goal in mind. That goal is healthy relationships and healthy families. The key to becoming a thriving family is learning how to be in good, solid relationships with others. These relationships can then be modeled for others and the pattern will continue. I also want to bring hope to hurting people in their current situations. Unfortunately, we live in a fallen world and bad things continue to happen, but God offers us hope for a better future with Him. Through the counseling process, I want be a light to help others find that hope in their darkness.
