Work Experience

Therapist, Diamond Ranch Academy
Substance Abuse Therapist MSW Intern, Therapia Addiction Healing Center


I was born and raised in Southern California but have spent time in various parts of the country such as Nebraska, Colorado, Arizona, and now Southern Utah. I have live here for 11 years and although the summers are hot I enjoy watching the seasons change. I have 1 daughter who is now 18 and learning that age does not make someone an adult. I raised her as a single parent and have learned a lot of life lessons the hard way. Family connection is something that I hold dear to my heart. Besides my love for animals, I have a deep passion for people and helping those who cannot or do not know how to help themselves. I love that I have the opportunity to be that safe place and voice of reason for those in need.

Comments on DRA

I truly feel blessed to have this wonderful opportunity to work with such amazing people who all share the same passion. Diamond Ranch Academy has a phenomenal program that gets results. Walking around the campus it is evident that those who work here love what they do, the interactions with the students and with each other are genuine. There are firm boundaries where there needs to be, yet there is also compassion and empathy. This is truly a place for positive growth and healing. I look forward to spending many great years here.
