​I was born and raised in Virginia Beach and still currently reside there.  I am enrolled to complete my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy, with a strong focus on military families and substance abuse.  Previously, I was employed as an office manager at a family law attorney's office- specializing in military divorces and custody.  It was my employment there that I discovered this passion and it inspired me to return to school.  ​
