Biographical Sketch

I earned my Bachelor's in Science in kinesiology from LSU- Baton Rouge in 2004.  From there, I was accepted at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, MS and graduated in 2009 with a Master's in Occupational Therapy. After working as an occupational therapist in multiple settings I decided to return to school to advance my knowledge in a post professional occupational therapy program in Provo, Utah. I thoroughly enjoy teaching at ULM and I am dedicated to education and research in our profession.
