Originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, I relocated to the mountains of Western North Carolina in 2018 where I live with my 3-year-old son, husband, 2 dogs, and 3 cats.  I am currently completing my Master of Social Work at Western Carolina University and have previously worked in mental health and homeless services.  In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, fostering cats and kittens for the local humane society, and spending time with my family.
