I was born and raised here in Knoxville, lived here my whole life. In 2017, I graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BA in Neuroscience and Psychology. For the past three years I’ve been in various positions at the McNabb Center. I originally started as an Education Specialist at the Katie Miller Residential Residential Center, however my most recent experience was as a Team Leader at the Great Starts program. Throughout my time at the McNabb Center, I worked with individuals who had co-occuring disorders. Some of the values that drive me are: compassion for others, freedom/independence, family, friendship, determination, dependability, and curiosity/thirst for knowledge. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with friends and family, going on walks and hikes, watching TV, playing video games, and working on my embroidery projects.
