About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Creating, Loving, Expanding

ABOUT ME

I'm a laid back individual who loves her friends, good times, loving life, and sweet dogs. Right now, I work for the Early Head Start program and volunteer as an advocate for abused and neglected children . I used to volunteer for a sexual assault and children's advocacy center answering a crisis hotline. This year I plan to apply to graduate school for social work. Recently, I've been thinking about law school because I love advocating for children in the foster care system.

I love going to free/cheap shows downtown, going to Terrapin brewery, dance parties, potlucks, and getting to know new people/cultures.
