I earned my Bachelor of Science in Human Development with a focus on family studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. My experience includes internships with Adult Protective Services, the Adult Center for Enrichment, and Coastal Horizons counseling center. My post-graduate clinical work has focused on providing education and mental health services in a PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care) setting as a part of a multidisciplinary health care team at Elderhaus in Wilmington, NC. Additionally, I am a Certified Dementia Practitioner.
