My Greatest Supporters

My Greatest Supporters are Dr. Palmer, Jenee Palmer, Dr. Carnetta Porter, and Dr. Emily Hause. With their guidance and mentorship, I was able to reach my highest potential. I would not be on the path I am today, without their unconditional support. I specifically love Jenee and Dr. Palmer and I aspire to mirror their dedication and mentorship when I get my professional job.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

My favorite SMC memory was being able to go to the American Psychological Association Conference in Chicago (2019) with Dr. Palmer, Kennell Henry, and the rest of the Akoben Research Lab. This increased my appreciation for research and counseling psychology. My other favorite memory was studying abroad in Italy (2020) and being able to go to Paris with my partner, Nesther Fernandez.

My Next Chapter

I am proud to say that I will be continuing my education for an M.A. in Mental Health Counseling at Boston College's Lynch School of Education and Human Development.
