I first had the opportunity to work with the wonderful folks at HEP while providing HIV prevention services and HEP was always tons of fun to get to work alongside. My educational background is in chemical dependency counseling from Edmonds College and in peer support services. I am excited to be working with HEP as so much of the work we do here is also a personal passion for me. I believe strongly in the principals of harm reduction that are practiced at HEP and seeing those forces in action helping people live better and healthier lives is a truly unique reward. When I’m at home you’d likely find me on my computer gaming, gardening or baking desserts. I look forward to a long and productive time working with the Hepatitis Education Project.
