She enjoys the transition to a career college counseling and enjoys working with the student population. Her hopes for NASAP and goals as NASAP Board Secretary are to increase membership, expand understanding of Adlerian psychology outside of NASAP, and create social justice initiatives that are rooted in the Adlerian way.
