About Me

I’m a Marine Corps Combat Veteran. My experience started in 2006, while serving in the military, I was assigned as the Battalion Uniformed Victim Advocate (UVA) for sexual assault victims and the Suicide Intervention & Prevention Instructor Trainer. At times, I had to do on-site victim response and suicide negotiations. This lead me into a career as a Social Worker.

Education & Experience

I am a Doctor of Behavioral Health and licensed Social Worker. I obtained my Doctorate from Arizona State University and my Masters of Social Work degree from University of Southern California and my Bachelors in Psychology from California State University San Marcos.
