Ensuring the wellness of others is my life's work and passion! I graduated with my master's in mental health counseling in May of 2019. I have over 1,000 hours of clinical experience, with a specialty in crisis intervention and the impacts of trauma. In addition to this, I've had training in bystander intervention, creating safe spaces, and peacebuilding. I'm here to ensure that you feel safe and comfortable at our event and to help you resolve any conflict that might arise.
