After graduating from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in May of 1998, I moved to San Antonio where I attended St. Mary’s University to pursue a Master’s degree in Counseling with a specialty of Marriage and Family Therapy. After completing my graduate studies, I worked with several non-profit organizations prior to joining Methodist Healthcare System as a Program Therapist in an inpatient psychiatric hospital setting.
In 2005, I relocated with my husband to the Georgetown area where I joined the Outpatient Mental Health Clinic at Scott & White in Temple, Texas. During my time with Scott & White, I have had opportunities to collaborate with Physicians, Psychologists, Social Workers, and many other specialists within the healthcare organization.
In 2007, I was appointed as a Clinical Instructor with the Texas A&M Health Science Center where I developed and facilitated lectures to Medical Students and Medical Residents in the Department of Psychiatry. I was an Adjunct Instructor of Psychology at the University of Mary Hardin Baylor as well as the Intern/Practicum coordinator for the Scott & White Military Homefront Services, a program funded by the Texas Veteran’s Commission.
In 2012, I joined the Round Rock Specialty Clinic at Baylor Scott & White and was given opportunities to represent the organization with numerous media, and television appearances as well opportunities to present at community health fairs and related events.
