Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

What do you do at the center?

I have always enjoyed helping people. I have my master’s degree in movement therapy, which comes with a psychology degree. I worked in an Alzheimer’s retirement facility before coming here. I chose a job working in the medical field because I want to continue learning more about the human body from a medical standpoint since I have a psychology background. I also enjoy continuing to help people.

What are your hobbies?

I have been a dancer since I was a little girl and have continued to dance in my adult career. My bachelors and master’s degree are related to dance, and I am a Zumba instructor currently. When I am not here at work I am often horseback riding or baking.
