Chicago | Associate Professor, Counseling: Art Therapy
I am a learner and a teacher; I consider both to be dynamic and continuous pursuits. I am curious about the world and am open to new experiences and information. I value diversity and advocate for tolerance, respect, and social justice. And I truly believe that students are the future. Therefore, I encourage them to become involved, using their knowledge, skills, and talents to strengthen their communities as they become teachers and continue to learn. Each generation influences the next to carry on our work.
Adler University’s vision is aligned with my personal principles and teaching philosophy. I am a lifelong learner who believes in inspiring and helping others as I advocate for social justice.
