Born in Canada, and raised in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, I am an artist and emergent art therapist currently living and working in Michigan.  I completed my undergraduate education in psychology, where I developed a passion for research and belief in its importance in understanding and communicating ideas with others.  

I continue to develop my identity as an artist through experimentation with different media, and have most recently fallen in love with fibers. I graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in May 2018 with a Master's degree in Art Therapy.
