Work Experience:

I previously worked as the Director of Education and Engagement at Mental Health America Wabash Valley Region providing mental health education and training to community members and advocated with local leaders for additional mental health services that are accessible, affordable, and inclusive. Before that, I worked as Regional Coordinatior with Intuitive Synergies on behalf of Indiana's Division of Mental Health and Addiction where I worked with eleven Indiana counties to promote mental health awareness and supported substance use prevention efforts. Prior to graduating from Purdue, I worked at the CoRec on campus as a Graduate Student and worked as a Teaching/Research Assistant in the Data Mine.

Advice for Boilermakers:

 Enjoy your time on campus, don't be afraid to try something new, and take time for yourself.
