I studied Psychology, Communication Studies, and Entrepreneurship at the University of Iowa. In college, I worked as a live-in nanny and a research assistant in a lab studying attachment styles and their impact on adult relationships. After college, I married my husband of 10 years and moved to Denver to study counseling.
I received my Master’s Degree from Denver Seminary and I am both a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed School Counselor in the state of Colorado. In my previous role, I managed district-wide college- and career-readiness events, developed the district-wide counseling curriculum, and helped provide Professional Development and support for counselors in Denver Public Schools. Much of my experience has to do with observing behavior to understand its function, helping teachers develop a plan to manage the environment, and collecting outcome data to show results.
While not listed on my resume, my best baby credentials come from my personal experience both now and growing up. I was in high school when my mom and dad had my little brother and sister, and now I’m a mother to toddler and twins. In addition to having theoretical knowledge of counseling, psychology, and child development, I have the practical experience to help bring my knowledge to life and give it the context it deserves. I love to share my knowledge and experience to help others and am amazed at how much my training and experience has helped me as a mom.
