Currently I am enrolled at Walden University for my BS in Psychology majoring in Addiction. I hold a 4.0 GPA, I am on the Dean’s List and a current member of Phi Theta Kappa. I have further studied Eating Disorders, Disordered Eating, the medical aspect and treatment modalities, as I feel strongly that disordered nutritional habits are prevalent among these populations.

With a background in Elderly Mental Health Care, having been a fully licensed Insurance Agent in the state of California and having an extensive business and management background dating back to 1994 I have been provided with a great understanding of Ethics, Confidentiality and Documentation to say the least.
