About Me

Hi there!

Thank you so much for visiting my page. A little bit about me.  I am Michigan born and raised. Shortly after graduating high school, I moved to Hawai’i and lived on the beautiful island of Oahu for almost 7 years. While attending Hawaii Pacific University, I received my BA in Psychology with a minor in Chemistry; as well as a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I've since returned to Michigan, and I currently practice here in Birmingham at Dayspring Vision Counseling, PLLC as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I am also Board Certified as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) in the mental health care field. In addition to counseling, I am also an agency signed runway and print model; blogger and founder of Eclectic Chic®, LLC; world traveler; influencer; public speaker and mentor; and the proud owner of LJ Interior Designs: "Let Your Happily Ever After Begin At Home"®.

Having traveled extensively within the U.S. and abroad with family, and also as a People to People Student Ambassador, I have been exposed to and worked with people from many different cultures. I have been blessed with the opportunity to visit places all over the world, including Australia, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, England, France, Belgium, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Canada, Aruba, The Bahamas and Jamaica.

I am a bit of a daredevil, and love trying new, adventurous activities. The most exhilarating and memorable experiences I have had include skydiving, shark cage diving, parasailing, horseback riding, snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge, jet skiing, paintballing and water jet packing!

When I am not working or traveling, I like to keep a nice balance between hiking, golfing, or swimming outdoors, and staying inside with a nice book, painting, or watching a good movie and/or Korean drama. I also love music, and have played the piano since I was 6 years old and the violin since I was 11 years old.
