I studied English Literature as an undergraduate at CSU, Chico. As it turned out, my inability to make decisions led to the addition of a second major: Psychology.
Fortunately for me, the two subjects compliment each other very well. Writers and Psychologists both ask the same question when looking at the behavior and patterns of human beings – Why?
Researching Schema Theory and Body Image, I completed a master’s program in Psychological Sciences in 2017. During those two years I spent many late nights dreaming of writing a novel when I should have been editing my thesis.
I am currently part of a behavioral consultant team that provides services for adults with developmental disabilities. Now that I have my degree, I am pursuing creative writing and beginning to develop a portfolio while living and working in northern California with my husband, Matthew.
I value my family, faith, reading, chocolate, and movies.
