About Me

#actuallyautistic #adhd

I am currently a laboratory scientist specializing in the screening and confirmation for drugs of abuse. I've used some of my self-directed time exploring data analysis as well as programming. I've completed over 170 classes on LinkedInLearning pertaining to these new love interests since the pandemic began and I'm looking to put that knowledge to use. I'm a former foster child, first generation college student, and budding advocate in my spare time in the areas of mental health and neurodivergence. I focus on connecting local individuals with resources, tips as well as telling parts of my story so that others may find connection and community to heal.

Ideal Workplace Values

I value a work place that highly values inclusivity, honesty, integrity, ingenuity and personal growth.
