She received her undergraduate degree at Long Beach State University before entering her Doctorate degree at the University of California, San Francisco and San Francisco State University. During her last clinical rotation, she was placed at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles where she had the pleasure to work with amazing kiddos and families to help them overcome life-changing events.
