My life, goals, and ambitions have been shaped by my experiences as a military brat. I have lived all over the world including Clovis, New Mexico; Herchies, Belgium; Williamsburg, Virginia; Aviano, Italy; and Tucson, Arizona. I graduated from George Mason University in 2017 with a degree in International Conflict Analysis and Resolution with the hopes of one day working for the Foreign Service in the State Department to promote diplomatic peace missions across the globe. I am now pursuing a Master’s of Education in Human Relations at Norther Arizona University. For now, my goal is to counsel military families who are struggling through hard times after deployments and other difficulties to offer some kind of help I know we could have used. I would love to give back to the military community like it has given to me.
