I was born and raised in Oregon. Growing up I was pretty self-sufficient and was taught most life skills by counselors, teachers, and mentors. I’ve experienced a lot of loss throughout my life, which has made me become stronger as a person. I was a first generation high school and college graduate and first heard about peer support working in the security field. I then discovered that my heart was in the mental health field supporting others. In my free time I love everything music related, love animals, traveling, hanging out with friends and watching movies.
