I am originally from Philadelphia and am currently living in Athens working toward a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology. I focus on adolescent risk taking behavior, and I truly love my work. In the future I hope to become a professor and develop a career counseling program for at-risk youth. Even though I live and work in Athens right now, I get to Atlanta quite a bit for fun, entertainment, or a weekly trip to whole foods.
My Philly roots run deep. I love Eagles football and soft pretzels like nobody's business (though not as much as De Niro in Silver Linings Playbook). I spent all of my childhood summers at the Jersey shore. As a result of my Jersey summers, my favorite place in the whole world is the beach. The best beach I have visited so far is Cinque Terre in Italy, but I hope to see many more beaches in my lifetime. Greece is at the top of my list. I also love to read, novels mostly, and usually have multiple books going at once. Give me a good beach, a book, and sunshine and I'll be happy.
