Hello and welcome to SODA! I am very excited to be a part of the Western community as this will be my first year here. I just moved to Bellingham from Philadelphia, PA where I was born and raised. I earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Pennsylvania where I specialized in Counseling Psychology and Mental Health Services. While pursing my degrees I worked closely with students through assistant teaching, supplemental instructing, and goal planning. My favorite part of Res Life is being able to witness how much students learn and grow from the beginning of the academic year all the way to the end. In my free time I enjoy baking, watercolor painting, and watching British crime dramas in Netflix. Feel free to stop by my office and say hi!
