I received my doctoral degree in Counselor Education and Counseling from Idaho State University in 2017. I grew up in Montana and received my bachelor's as well as master's degree from Montana State University. I practiced as a school counselor at all levels K-12 for 10 years before pursuing my doctorate.

As a counselor educator, I hope to facilitate learning regarding the ‘how to’ of being a counselor while offering an opportunity for students to develop a sense of self through the use of a relational-based classroom. I hope to create a classroom community where students feel they matter on a professional and personal level. Ultimately, I believe this will yield competent, ethically-minded, socially-just school counselors and clinical mental health counselors.
