"My mission is to help people grow and develop the strength and resiliency they need to thrive in their environment. I believe strongly in educating people about their brain and the impact trauma can have on our brains and bodies, but I also believe in uncovering the power people have within themselves to heal and begin to create the life they want for themselves."
IN MY FREE TIME -
I love to bake for my family and neighbors and hang out with my husband and little girl. We spend our weekends exploring and enjoying the Chesapeake Bay area and soaking up the beauty of the area where we live. I also love to get in some snuggles and playtime with our Corgi, Gwendolyn.
