What brought me to Pittsburgh?
I was transplanted here! Having grown up in Northeast Pennsylvania, I spent the majority of my higher education across the state in Slippery Rock. When I graduated, I decided that I wanted to stick around the Pittsburgh area, and the rest is history 😊
What brought me into the work I do?
My work at Becoming Through Sound is the culmination of a variety of my own interests and passions. Initially, I started off pursuing music education, performance, and gender studies, but that eventually led me to music therapy which further led me into the counseling field. In many ways each of these fields are still reflected in the work I do currently, and it is such a joy! I love being able to dip my toes into many walks of life. My main motivation for doing the work I do comes from a desire to support others with living their best lives.
What's my favorite caffeinated beverage?
Always coffee (although I wouldn't say no to a good chai tea)! These days I usually just drink it black or with oat milk, but I'm not super picky as long as its caffeinated ☕️
What's my favorite hobby?
My hobbies change with the seasons and with my mood. Currently, I am enjoying video gaming (in particular Stardew Valley and Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom) as well as reading in my spare time. I also love to swim, but I don't get to do it as much as I would like to!
