I have worked in the counseling/human services field including all types of counseling, training and providing expert witness testimony for the courts for over 10 years. My love of teaching began with training facilitators and staff members in the corrections and school settings, then teaching all Psychology specialty classes as an adjunct for Morgan Community College, and now finding a new home at Bollman as the Psychology and Introduction to Behavioral and Mental Health instructor. My licensures as an LPC and NLC have allowed me to expand my counseling practices worldwide through agencies and my private practice. I am blessed to be the mother of five amazing children that are all taking different paths in life. My love of hockey has expanded my roles into safesport and tournament director and allowed me to combine my love of the game with my ability to work with others. I am forever the optimist that loves positive psychology and bringing excitement and love of learning and life to the classroom and all other areas of my work and life.
