I joined the Graduate School of Counseling in 2019 to serve as an assistant professor of counseling and as director of the clinical mental health counseling program. I moved here from Greensboro, North Carolina, where I worked as an outpatient therapist at the Peculiar Counseling and Consulting clinic for the two previously. Concurrently, I was a graduate assistant in the Office of Career Services at North Carolina A&T State University.

During the 2018-19 academic year, I served as a teaching assistant at North Carolina A&T while finishing up my doctoral program. I previously was a master’s-level intern at the North Carolina State University Counseling Center in 2015-16 and worked as a practicum intern at the Guilford County Juvenile Detention Center in Greensboro in 2015.

I completed a PhD in rehabilitation counseling and rehabilitation counselor education in May of 2019 from North Carolina A&T State University. I also hold a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from the same institution (2016), as well as a bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (2012). I live in Portland.
