I hold national certifications as a Recreation Therapist and a Nonprofit Professional. My professional experience includes over 7 years working with children, adolescents and adults in a variety of settings; such as, but not limited to, hospitals, camps, and nonprofit organizations.  Among this experience, I have also worked with Girl Scouts of Indiana, Boy Scouts of America, as a gymnastics coach, and a nanny.
