My journey began in the summer of 2017, starting off as a student of wilderness therapy deep in the deserts of Utah, leaving the small town of Redwood City, California where I was born and raised for 21 years, in the rearview mirror.
Throughout the course of my stay in wilderness therapy, I discovered a profound love and passion for the mental health and recovery field, having had a spiritual realization that giving back to others and helping those who had walked similar paths to mine, was my calling. Eventually, after months of grueling work and self-discovery, I transitioned from the desert into Cascade Crest Transitions. I chose to enroll at CCT due to its incredible location, breath-taking landscape, and a plethora of outdoor activities.
My goal as a residential staff at CCT now is to bestow upon the student body the same life-saving care, empathy, and compassion that at one point saved my own life while being a guiding light to those desperately searching for their own individual power and love for life. I love to hike, rock climb, snowboard, fish, camp, and play basketball.
