I grew up in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and obtained my B.S. in Education from the University of Central Oklahoma. I began to focus my energy toward counseling while working with inner city youth in Houston, Texas. I pursued my M.S. in Counseling at Texas A & M University- Corpus Christi and then a Ph.D. in Counselor Education. At Lindsey Wilson College School of Professional Counseling I am an Assistant Professor and Regional Academic Director for the
Gateway Region. In my roles at LWC-SPC I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with students and encourage them toward success.
