I am passionate about mental health advocacy, creating an equitable world that prioritizes wellbeing, and facilitating individual transformation. I am an incoming Masters in Social Work candidate at the University of Baltimore, and I plan to get my LCSW to become a trauma therapist specializing in neurodivergence and queerness. I'm also an artist and I have a mindfulness practice, and hope to incorporate these into the work I do.

Ideal Workplace Values

My ideal workplace would be knowledgable about accommodating neurodivergent and transgender people. I appreciate direct communication, explicitly stated expectations, and intentional interpersonal relationships.
