Why and when I joined the board:

I moved from Louisiana where I was involved with the board and knew I wanted to get involved right away when I moved to Pennsylvania in 2015!


I play at (where I work and what I do for fun):

Immaculata University & Equilibria Psychological and Consultation Services; For fun these days I’m enjoying getting to know my daughter born just months after my presidency started! I also like to travel home to New Orleans, spend time with friends, read, swim, listen to music, and feed my conference travel addiction as much as possible.


Where I learned to play (school/trainings):

University of New Orleans + Center for Play Therapy Summer Institute and Intensive Supervision + numerous other conferences, workshops, and trainings.


Why play therapy:

It just makes sense!

My favorite play therapy quote:


“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”
