Things I like to do outside of work:
I travel extensively and have visited over 12 countries on 3 continents. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love to spend time with my husband, Chihuahua and cats.
Why Counseling and Psychology is a great career option:
There is no greater reward then helping others reach their potential. Counseling and Psychology have been my passion since my earliest memories, I am energized and excited each day I can teach a class or even just meet with a student. This is an exciting and diverse field; each day is new and filled with adventure. Anyone who pursues either of these fields will be rewarded by helping others.
Follow your passion, you move towards what you think about and visualize your dreams.
