I moved to Detroit from the North Carolina mountains. As graduate of University of North Carolina at Asheville, I am passionate about the humanities, social science, and taking a humanitarian approach to life. I’ve always worked jobs that focused on building connections and trust, from teaching swim lessons to adult beginners, full-service car detailing, and bartending, to research and assistant positions in community health and lifespan development programs. I became a celebrant because it is just one way I can promote an egalitarian value system, build community, and find happiness by serving others. After pursuing graduate studies in NC, my partner and I relocated to Michigan where I am a doctoral student in Psychology. In our free time, you’ll catch us exploring the great lakes, training our dogs, and trying new beers! Read more about my photography experience on our photos page.
