Education / Experience:
I received my initial BA and MBA degrees in Marketing and Management, respectively from Davenport University located in Dearborn, Michigan. After becoming restless in retail management, I began my over ten year career in the banking industry, primarily as an underwriter and credit officer. While in banking, I was fortunate enough to realize my purpose in life. With encouragement and support from my closest friends and family, I made the decision to return to school to study psychology.
I was honored to be accepted into the graduate program at Hope International University in Anaheim, California (COAMFTE accredited). Following three years of hard work, I received my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy and became a member of Delta Kapa International Honor Society. During my last year of school, I trained at the highly regarded, Southern California Counseling Center and later completed my required client hours.
