About Me

As a non-traditional student at Portland State University, I am finishing the last year of the degree requirements for my major in Aging Services and minors in Community Health and Psychology. While I am incredibly interested in all aspects of geriatrics, my passion and focus both academically and professionally has been in the psychiatric and mental health care of our aging populations. After graduation, my hope is to secure a rewarding full-time position within the field while I complete the Graduate Certificate in Geriatrics program (also at PSU) before eventually moving on to earn either my MSW or MSN, although I am still undecided and unsure of which. Outside of the classroom and workplace I can be found either spending time with my family, particularly our all too quickly aging pre-teen daughters, or in the gym training hard for this coming season of female 35+ competition.
