More on This Provider
I grew up mostly in a small town in southeastern Minnesota. Although I moved around some in my college years and immediately thereafter, Minnesota has always been my home. I currently reside in a small town near New Ulm, where I enjoy spending time with family, reading, playing board games, doing puzzles, playing tennis and other sports, going on walks, caring for my aquariums and being involved in my local church.
I received a bachelor of arts degree in philosophy from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota in 2011. I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Divine Mercy University, Sterling, VA. I will be graduating in October of 2021 and will then be seek licensure as a licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC).
I have worked in a variety of differing fields, including health care as a nursing assistant, factory work on a production line, the food industry at several restaurants and, most recently, education as an elementary school teacher. I have enjoyed each of these jobs in their own right but have found that working with people via counseling is my true passion.
