I completed my undergraduate studies at Texas A&M University where I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and obtained a Master of Social Work degree from Louisiana State University in 2019. In 2014, I began working in the role of a Wraparound care coordinator at Choices in Lake Charles, Louisiana. I later moved into the role of a Wraparound practice support specialist as I began my partnership with NWIC as a local coach/trainer certification candidate. In 2019, I left my role in Wraparound when I relocated to Bonham, Texas to be closer to my family and began working as a medical social worker at area hospitals. Fortunately, my passion for Wraparound and workforce development endured and when I learned about the opening for a national coach/trainer in Texas I jumped at the opportunity to join the team. I have two teenage children and two very photogenic dogs (a French Bulldog and English Bulldog), one of whom is a trained support dog for my partner, who is a military veteran. I am an avid reader and enjoy true crime podcasts. I also enjoy cooking Cajun cuisine and I am told I makes a great gumbo!
