I grew up in Fresno, CA and got my BA in psychology at CSU Fresno. I am a second year student in the Marital and Family Therapy program and am excited to be graduating this coming May. Prior to moving to LA to attend graduate school, I found great pleasure as a volunteer for the Footsteps program providing group art therapy for children who had suffered a death in their family. Besides making art, one of my favorite things to do is hike and I successfully completed a bucket list item 3 summers ago when my older brother and I hiked to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park.
