Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My family has been in Los Angeles for three generations. I love Los Angeles for its diverse and rich culture. Growing up, I also spent a lot of time in the Uinta and Wasatch Mountains, and gained a deep appreciation for nature and our environment. When I get tired of the city hustle and traffic, I enjoy a respite out in the high desert or somewhere along the coast by the water. I went to college in Seattle and studied forestry, conservation, and photography. I earned a BFA in Art and Environmental Studies. I also have an MFA from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. And I received my MA in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University in Los Angeles. I’ve worked in a community mental health clinics with individuals, couples, families, and teen groups. I’ve also worked for a public mental health agency serving vulnerable youth and families doing field work in schools and homes. I am very passionate about supporting my community, especially marginalized and underrepresented groups.
