I work as both a freelance indexer and a licensed clinical social worker. I have a Master's degree in social work and a bachelor's degree in psychology (both from SDSU). I have completed the training course of the American Society for Indexing as well the UC Berkeley course. I am a member of the American Society for Indexing national and Southern California chapters. I am also certified to teach adult learners at the junior college level (UCSD). I have traveled extensively.
