My Story

When I was completing my undergraduate degree, I worked in a daycare center with two-year-olds, and it is from there that my passion for working with young children developed. In college, I discovered social work and realized it was the perfect field to combine my love of interacting with children through play and helping them grow to reach their full potential.

My Eyas Landing

I love that Eyas utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach for working with children.

My Professional Goals

  1. Continue to grow my clinical skills.
  2. To become fully licensed in Infant and Toddler Mental Health.
