Academic Background: Western Carolina University
Why APP: A couple reasons why I came to Boone are I love the mountains, I completed my undergrad at Western Carolina and couldn't get enough of the scenery here, plus I have App alum in my family who informed me of the great programs here.
Why School Counseling: I've always had a desire to work in the school system, enjoy helping others, and I knew PSC was right for me after interning
at a K-8 school where I thrived working with the students there.
