About

My education has been quite eclectic. I completed a BSc in Chemical Biology, with minor in Developmental Psychology, Gender Psychology, and Abnormal Psychology, from Stevens Institute of Technology (Hoboken, NJ). I followed this with a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University (Chicago, IL).
