I started out as a scientist, a preclinical pharmacologist, out of college. I wanted to use my B.S. degree in Biochemistry. While it was great to contribute to the scientific community, I felt that I could contribute to our community by teaching science, so I moved to Pittsburgh for grad school to get a Master’s in Education. I taught high school and middle school science for several years and loved it! I love education and what it can do for society, so I’m an educational coach who works with teachers. I also strongly believe in mental health, which led me to become a mental health coach. Due to my background, it seemed the most natural for me to gravitate towards youth suicidal prevention.
