Over the past 20 years I have had the good fortune of working in a field that I really love. Every day I look forward to going to work. It is a privilege to be able to make a difference in someone's life, to help them make their life just a little bit better.
I started college as a business major but soon realized that my passion was for working with people and not numbers. I was drawn to the field of psychology and social work.
While working on my degree in psychology I went to work as a counselor in a group home for adolescents. I helped these kids deal with self esteem issues, stress and depression, physical, mental and sexual abuse and other emotional issues. My daily interactions with these adolescents fostered in me a desire to do more. I went on to bringing into my home several foster kids many of whom still are a part of my life.
