Approach to wellness: I believe that each student is an expert of their own experiences and that each student already has the capacity to work toward health and wellness. I use a holistic and strengths-based approach when working with students—integrating students’ background, experiences and values to support their wellness goals. Through collaboration and empowerment, I hope to work with students to redefine the meaning of success and to more effectively incorporate wellness dimensions into their lives.
Personal Interests: I am a lifelong learner and traveler. I enjoy reading a variety of essays and books with a fondness for poetry, self-improvement, and memoir/autobiography. Interpersonal relationships and community building are important to me and I do so through cooking with/for others, watching movies and documentaries, being in nature, engaging in good conversations and laughing.
