Before working as a Therapeutic Mentor at ARTrelief, I received my Master’s degree in Elementary Education. I then went on to partner with Boston and Cambridge Public Schools through the Big Sister Association where I worked for two year. I was able to match young girls with positive mentors and support them in building a strong relationship. I’ve loved working with kids in various different capacities and am passionate about encouraging their growth and self-expression.
