Personal

I have always been interested in building. This passion fuels both my professional and personal pursuits. Professionally I thrive on building a working alliance with client's that allows them to fulfill their goals for growth and development. I also enjoy constructing research projects that answer my clinical questions. Personally, I enjoy any opportunity to further develop my relationships with loved ones, woodworking and knitting.
