Being a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, and trained in the field of Applied Behavioral Analysis have given me vast and diverse professional experiences. But the most meaningful beyond the awards, leadership roles, recognition, and academic accomplishments has been my ongoing passion for volunteering.
My greatest joy is spending a week each summer as a volunteer counselor with Muscular Dystrophy Association Summer Camp. This year was my 10th year and another significant accomplishment.
There is no greater joy, no amount of money, or reward that can fill the soul than giving of your time in such a meaningful way. This is and will always be my greatest accomplishment.
CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS:

ONE THING EVERY FAU STUDENT SHOULD EXPERIENCE:
Volunteer! Get involved in at least one student organization, club, or academic honor society your passionate about. Experiencing the opportunity for a leadership role in a student organization was lifechanging and one of the foundational reasons I made it all the way to a doctoral program.
ADVICE FOR FELLOW STUDENTS:
Follow your heart, learn to trust your instincts, when to take a break, and especially when to ask for help!
Complete my dissertation and finally achieve my lifetime dream of earning a doctoral degree, followed by a successful professional life and career sharing that knowledge with as many people as humanly possible.
