She has always been passionate about working with children and has learned a great deal about mental health from her experience working with the adolescent population in metro Detroit. She first became interested in Six Feet Over via the organization’s involvement in education.

Her goal is to encourage everyone, especially children, to become active participants in both their health care and mental health care.
