  • I am currently studying for the CADC exam, and I hope to continue my education in the spring of 2017 at UMA to get my Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Health and Human Services, majoring in Addictions Counseling. I have recently been offered a position at Kennebec Behavioral Health and I am very excited for the new opportunity.


I currently live in Winslow, although I was born and raised in Portland. I am a single mom to an amazing 3 ½ year old boy. We have 2 dogs, a Boxer and a Chihuahua. I have walked through some difficult times in life, which is what brought me to the Mental Health field! My hope is to use my life experience and education to try to make an impact on others. I believe that absolutely everyone is capable of change, as long as they are given the right tools!


I am truly excited and honored to be teaching this class! When I walked into KVCC as a first time college student a little over 2 years ago, I never imagined I would be where I am today. I want to let you all know that just making the choice to continue your education is amazing, and it will open the doors to so many opportunities for you. As a student, all you need to do is keep your eyes and ears open and be willing to take a step out of your comfort zone every once in a while. IT WILL BE WORTH IT! KVCC is an amazing school, with so many resources that are available to you. In my personal experience, most people that come into the Mental Health field are people that truly have a passion for helping others. However, sometimes we need help too, and that is OK! Don’t be afraid to ask for it. Whether it be help with an assignment, understanding technology, or just “life” stuff. Please don’t hesitate to contact me, or another instructor at school. I also highly recommend reaching out and collaborating with your fellow classmates. There is so much knowledge to be gained from each other!
