Have a Bachelor's in English and working on a PhD in Clinical Social Work. I have been in the HIV/AIDS field for about 14 years. I plan on starting a part-time therapy practice November/December 2012 and will be starting an adjunct faculty position with the UT system as a Social Work lecturer. Fanatic about literature of all kinds and music. Currently I am a member of Congregation Shalom Rav and associate member of Congregation Agudas Achim here in Austin, TX. Tastefully tattooed and pierced, but don't let that scare you...I'm a teddy-bear at heart. Interests include jogging, reading, blogging, Kabbalah, and my two dachshunds.
