 About me:

What a trying time to be a student. Not only do we have to juggle the demands of higher education in addition to our own personal responsibilities; but we also must accomplish this during a global pandemic where our lives have been shifted and we are trying to find a “new normal”.  As the Wellness Advocate, I am here to help students who need someone to talk to,  to problem-solve, as well as provide information and referrals to on and off-campus resources. 

I received my undergraduate degree from Millersville in Social Work in 2019, and I am a current Graduate student in the Social Work program.  I am also in the process of completing a certificate in expressive arts therapy.  I love theatre and music and have taught piano in the past.  I’m an avid concert-attendee (pre-COVID), and I make lifestyle, makeup, fashion, and music content for YouTube in my free time. 

I look forward to connecting with you and advocating for your overall wellness and educational success! Good luck with the semester.
