love spending time with my husband Ryan, my stepdaughter Adina (11), and my son Rudie (4). They are such a vital part of mental well being and make me want to be the best person I can be! I also love to loom knit and write loom knit patterns! The texture of yarn between my fingers and movement of my hands is stress relieving and fun! I love making hats, socks, scarves, blankets and exploring new ideas and coming up with new creations.
For the longest time it was getting my bachelor’s degree. I worked on and off on my degree for over 10 years and finished my bachelor’s in psychology with a concentration in mental health and minor in sociology in early June 2016. Another thing that had been on my bucket list was to get married and have a family and biological child of my own! I am very lucky and fortunate for what I all have!
Lake Michigan because I find the sound of the waves relaxing and love to swim, when the water is warm enough that is!
I strongly support the mission and goals of MHA! I love being part of team that is so dedicated to making a difference in our community! I strongly believe in the importance of Open Door in our community and love being a peer specialist. To learn more about Open Door Click Here.
