I was born and raised outside of Seattle, WA. I received my degree in Social Justice & Human Services from the George Washington University in Washington, DC before moving to the Portland area. Through my education and volunteer opportunities, my focus has always involved youth development. My training includes supporting youth experiencing mental health challenges, LGBTQ+ youth, and youth with alternative learning styles. I am passionate about building a more accessible, inclusive, and empowering environment for youth in our community. My personal joys include painting, spending time in nature, live music, and watching football (Go Hawks)!
