I started my work in the field of Rehabilitation Counseling at my practicum in 2018 with MO VR for four months. I then did my internship at a private practice providing both mental health and career counseling to a variety of clientele for 10 months and additional experience with MERS Lippman Center working with their job developers and autism program for 3 months. I graduated with my Master of Arts Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from Maryville University in May of 2019. I also became a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and a Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor in May of 2019. I began working as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor at the St. Louis Downtown office with the IPS caseload in May of 2019. I have also continued working in private practice, by running my own practice providing mental health and career counseling services since June of 2019. I additionally have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education and certified in Special Education (K-12) from 2017.

 

While in school I joined MRA as a student, and upon graduation I joined as a professional. I’ve been trying to attend all planned events and support this chapter of MRA for the past year. I am passionate about working in the rehabilitation field and look forward to the opportunity to uphold and promote the MRA’s missions and values. I am organized and driven to see various activities and fundraisers succeed so that this chapter can continue making a difference in the community for individuals with disabilities and the professionals working alongside them. Please consider me for a board member position.
