I am a: counselor/musicologist, professional/student, thinker/feeler, theorist/practitioner, dreamer/doer, East Coaster/Midwesterner. And now Southerner.
I live with my feet in many worlds. My love of music and the liberal arts led me to a Master’s degree in musicology from Penn State University. After some searching, I decided to return to school in January 2011 to pursue a Master’s in community counseling at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, graduating in May 2013. I love helping others and hope to do some good for my own tiny parts of the world.
“Feet in Two Worlds” is drawn from my musicology thesis title, The Two Worlds of Igor Stravinsky: Histoire du Soldat, Orpheus, and Petruskha. I’m drawn to the tensions that Stravinsky creates in his music, because I constantly stand with my feet in many worlds.
I’m a lifelong student and love discussing ideas with others. This space is for exploring current questions and issues that we simply don’t have time to discuss in my classes, such as how counseling collides with the worlds of technology, the arts and humanities, wellness, social advocacy, and more.
Whether you have none, one, or both feet in the counseling field, please join in the conversation!
