I am a native Tulsan. I hold a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling and have been a mental health care provider within the community for the past seven years in Tulsa and surrounding communities.
In 2011, I graduated from OSU with a bachelor’s in human development family science before graduating in 2016 with a masters in human relations from the University of Oklahoma. Most recently graduating December 2017 with a masters in clinical mental health counseling.
I founded Just A Push Foundation, a local 501C3 in 2010, and we gained our 501C3 in 2016. Just A Push Foundation strives to assist those who are in need within the community. Our mission is to link individuals with resources vital to attaining both physical and mental well-being as well as guidance towards living a healthier and positive lifestyle. Just A Push Foundation empowers at-risk communities by creating pathways to success through public service, charitable giving, and resource networking, free sports leagues, clothing closets, community events, and life skills training.
I have also developed a program called 74127, the abandoned zip code, advocating for equity such as a grocery store, a center, better streets, beautification, job opportunity and free sports programs by holding community engagement events with public servants such as the county commissioner’s office, senators and city councilors. JAP sponsored Midnight Basketball North West Tulsa and has a free baseball and cheer program.
Why are you running?
I am running for many reasons. I am running for Tulsans. I am running due to a lack of mental health accessibility and equity for all Tulsans. I am someone who cares about individuals and I feel that being a City Council member will put me in a position where I can help Tulsans.
