My Story

I decided to become a therapist assistant because I like working with children and I believe that every child should have the resources necessary to grow and develop.

My Blue Bird Day

I am a newly hired employee of Blue Bird Day and I am beyond excited to take on this new endeavor.

My Advocacy

I believe in supporting the welfare and social justice of those who are a part of marginalized groups. I support the Black Lives Matter Movement.

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. I am looking to go back to school to obtain my master’s in social work. Working here at Blue Bird, I hope to gain new knowledge that will help me to become a pediatric social worker.
