I am a graduate student in social work with a concentration in direct practice. I have experience in school and hospital social work and am currently dedicated to my five-year-plan which includes becoming a clinical social worker to practice faith-based counseling. I am abundantly blessed by my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and try to live my life saying “yes” to God every chance I have. In my spare time, I enjoy running, writing, reading, eating nachos, listening to KLove, and watching Fixer Upper on HGTV.
