Her passion extended into her college years, where she searched for opportunities that allowed her to work with inclusive, social, and recreational programs in which individuals were accepted and empowered. Shortly after graduating the University of New Hampshire in 2015 with a BS in Family Studies/ Human Development and a concentration in Child Advocacy and Family policy; she began her career as a Child and Family Advocate.
