I was born and raised in Charlotte County, Virginia where they just received first stoplight in the last few years. Growing up, I watched my mother work in the human services field as a social worker, case manager, and childcare provider. I did not want to follow in my mom's footsteps and decided that I wanted to be a physician. I attended The University of Virginia for undergraduate studies and received a bachelor's degree in psychology in 2011.
During my last year at college, I participated in the Young Women's Leadership Program, where I was a big sister to a middle school girl. This experience made a big impact in my life and I credit this to choosing to pursue a career in counseling and not pursuing a career as a physician. After college, I decided to stay in Charlottesville and began working in the human services field while pursuing my master's degree. I received her master's in professional counseling from Liberty University in 2014. I recently participated in a training program for EMDR and enjoy integrating different modalities to meet client needs. My team and I are excited to serve the surrounding community and show them what CARE at NCG is all about!
