She completed her bachelor’s degree in psychology in 2013 at Texas A&M University and a master’s degree in clinical and mental health counseling at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio. She worked with incarcerated youth at Bexar County Juvenile Detention center and youth in the foster care system while at Roy Maas Youth Alternatives.

When asked why she wanted to get involved?
As a clinician primarily working with children and families, I have witnessed firsthand how Clarity Child Guidance Center has helped keep youth safe. Suicidality in youth in Bexar County continues to rise and centers like Clarity are leading the way in providing safe, comprehensive care for these children and their families. With the JLSA Education Center at the Clarity Child Guidance Center campus, caregivers and providers would have the opportunity to access integral training that can help lower the number of suicides for our local youth.
