I am a UNC CH graduate student in my last year of PMHNP program. My area of interest in mental health is health promotion and disease prevention in the community I serve. I would like to create collaborative interdisciplinary mental health screening and brief counseling for adolescents in primary care settings and in schools. My other areas of interest are substance use disorders and addiction treatments in outpatient settings. In my spare time I go mountain hiking, Zumba dancing, learning a new language, and learning to play the guitar.
