What first interested you in psychology?
My mom was a college professor and taught child psychology. When I was younger, I would sit in her classes and really enjoyed it.
What brought you to Ball State?
I was looking for new opportunities within the field, and it’s exciting with this being my first time working at a university.
Please describe your role within the department.
I am an adjunct faculty member, teaching an advanced practicum course. Outside of this role, I am a therapist at the Youth Opportunity Center (YOC) in Muncie, and I also own Still Waters Professional Counseling.
What are your favorite hobbies?
I love playing sports, basketball specifically. I also enjoy watching college football (go Michigan!), spending time with my English Mastiff dog, and reading.
What is your favorite time of the day and why?
I’m not a morning person, so I would say the evenings. I can get a lot done in the evenings or just spend time relaxing.
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?
I can ride a unicycle!
How do you practice self-care?
I enjoy reading, doing activities outside, getting manicures and pedicures, and putting time into my spiritual life.
