I have a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Bemidji State University and a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Minnesota Duluth. I have a diverse background working in human services, social work, mental health and higher education. I have worked as a Children's Mental Health Case Manager, Mental Health Practitioner and in both Advising and Career Services at Bemidji State University. In Fall 2013, I started working at Central Lakes College as a Check & Connect Coach and have valued the opportunities I have had to work with students from different backgrounds. I am very passionate about psychology, teaching and most importantly, students!
