Photographer, Writer, Researcher, Psychologist, Road Warrior
I'm a psychologist based near a large Southern city. Over the years, I've worked with people of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds in a variety of inpatient, outpatient, residential, educational, correctional, and medical settings. I have maintained a private practice for years and I also serve as an online graduate school assistant professor. In addition to psychology, I am also a published photographer who enjoys documenting the lives of interesting people, culture, politics, religion, and current events, across the US but especially in the American South. I've been published in Social Documentary Network, CNN, Huffington Post, Taste of the South, Creative Loafing, National Geographic, to name a few, and have won awards out of the UK and been published internationally. I shoot national events for a major news organization focusing on social justice, racism, religion, environment, and US culture--especially that of the American South. My husband and two sons keep me afloat and make me laugh. My main hobbies are my animals, traveling (anywhere!), and genealogical research. I consider myself a road warrior and recently went on a 9,716 mile road trip across the USA which included a good part of Route 66. I have a long bucket list and I like to live life wide open!
