My second job was working with individuals with developmental disabilities and during that experience, I fell in love with that population. This path exposed me to the various aspects of mental health and psychology, which eventually educated me on the multiple career opportunities in the field of psychology.

My primary reason for joining the MPA was for the networking opportunities.

I hope to gain access to events and information that will broaden my knowledge and network of psychologists.

  6)  Any outside hobbies/interests you do not mind sharing?

I love to read, sing and dance. I used to write music in my youth but due to my studies and focus of building my own business as a consultant, I really have no time for my hobbies.
