My Greatest Supporters

I found strength and courage in my family and friends. When the academic journey became difficult I would seek the support of my colleagues. Completing my masters degree is a great achievement of pride for my parents, siblings and children. I am grateful for my family and peers support.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

Building community with my cohort and instructors are some of the fondest memories made at Saint Mary's. The fellowship and the enriching conversation about current events expanded my worldview about cultural humility, social justice and being an ally in my community.

My Next Chapter

I look forward to working as an AMFT in the next months. My long term goal is becoming a licensed therapist and explore other opportunities that lead to private practice.
