Profile


My last year of graduate school led me to some incredible opportunities. I wrote and received my very first grant from the Colorado School of Public Health and the University of Colorado School of Medicine's Injury and Violence Prevention Center. This funding went directly towards my Master's practicum and thesis on Suicide Prevention. I flew to Seattle to become a certified trainer in SafeTALK, which is a four hour training on Suicide Prevention. With this certification I was able to train 46 students, staff, and faculty on WCU's campus as part of my practicum. Lastly, I successfully defended my thesis, graduated with my Masters in Behavioral Science (MBS), and received the "Impact Award" from Western's Graduate Studies. I am beyond grateful for these past 6 years at Western, and am excited to see where my education takes me!
