As one of five children, I’m no stranger to logistical obstacles or creative problem solving! I take pride in my ability to use a systemic approach to address clients’ individualized needs.

Outside of the office, I enjoy being outside, spending time with my husband, and playing with my dogs. I also work with Camp Carolina Trails, a program sponsored by the American Diabetes Association for youth with diabetes.
