I enjoy living and teaching in the Pacific Northwest! My previous work experience includes nursing, medical family therapy, and now teaching graduate students and directing PLU’s couple and family therapy clinic. My professional interests include families with healthcare challenges, interdisciplinary training and collaboration, gender and power dynamics in couple relationships, and mentorship in education. Some of my personal interests include creative writing, camping, playing the piano, and traveling.
