I graduated in 2007 with a B.A. in Art/Painting and received my M.A. in Art Therapy and Counseling in 2010 from Southwestern College in Santa Fe, NM. I recently moved to Bullhead City, AZ to pursue my art therapy/counseling career with Mohave Mental Health Clinic which serves the Mohave County.

My four years at UD were the best I have had in my young adult life. The friends and memories are blessings from a generous universe. My education at UD prepared me for the real world, teaching me how to be tenacious, courageous, and true to myself. I don't refer to Beowulf or The Apology in daily or even monthly situations, but reading and discussing such qualities of the literature at UD provided life wisdom, especially for a person unsure of what to do post-UD. Furthermore, the art department offered me the opportunity to grow up! Such challenges and perseverance as I had never encountered, were a daily occurrence and I learned to navigate difficult yet rewarding waters. Attending UD was one of the best decisions I made in my life.
