I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Social Work from St. Cloud State University. Then, I journeyed to Colorado where I earned a Masters of Art in Leadership: Higher Education Administration from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. I am now a student at the University of Georgia attaining his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology.

I’m so excited to work with you all this summer and help you discover your potential whether it be in sports, storytelling, or even in my dance class! Get ready to have the time of your life and love the person you become as the weeks fly by and you create friendships of a life time.
