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, I relocated to Michigan where I am a doctoral student in Psychology. In my free time, you’ll catch me exploring the great lakes, training my dogs, and trying new beers!
