I serve as an Implementation Specialist for the NC High Fidelity Wraparound Training Program. I am a
Qualified Mental Health Professional, Certified Peer Support Specialist, and I hold a Bachelor of Science
degree in Psychology from Old Dominion University. I am passionate about increasing the awareness and
value of holistic approaches and authentic community engagement, which I believe are the keystones to
empowering youth, young adults, and families to be catalysts for change. I draw from my personal lived
experience and 10 years of professional experience in the field of mental health to advocate for policies
and programs that not only promote community inclusion but also elevate the voices of youth and
families at all levels of decision-making.
