Incorporating Wellness

I strive for balance and enjoyment in all aspects of my life. Exercising outdoors brings me a sense of peace and an opportunity to reflect. I love creative projects, connecting with people, being with family, great food, and taking time to rest. 


How I can help

I aim to learn about students’ unique experiences and strengths so I can provide them with the support and resources they need to feel fulfilled and be successful.
