About Me

I grew up in Colorado spending time in nature and exploring the gorgeous landscapes my home state has to offer. From a young age, I always found so much joy in making things with my hands, and getting absorbed into a flow state of creativity. There was always something magical about the way art helped me see things from a new perspective, or made me feel like I could express the things that words could never fully capture. A high school counselor told me about the art therapy profession, and I felt called to pursue it as my career path. I moved out to Oregon to attend the art therapy counseling program at Marylhurst University, but I fell in love with the Pacific Northwest and am now proud to call Oregon my home. 


During my leisure time, you'll find me reading a great romantasy book, enjoying a walk/hike in one of Oregon's many beautiful natural areas, or spending quality time with my family and/or friends. I'm happiest when I'm cuddled up next to a warm fire on a rainy day with my watercolor paints and a warm beverage to sip.
