About me

I was born in Nigeria and raised in Georgia. I grew up in a household that emphasized the values of faith, family and dreaming big. In high school, I found that I genuinely enjoyed working with children as I volunteered as a camp counselor and was inspired by my psychology teacher to pursue a career in psychology. I attended the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!), where I earned a degree in both psychology and criminal justice.

During college, I volunteered in different capacities working with children of all ages. It was during those years that I committed to dreaming big and doing what I loved. I lived abroad and then moved to Colorado for graduate school, where I obtained a master's degree in forensic psychology and a doctorate in psychology. At Kaiser Permanente, I have the opportunity to continue doing what I love by working with children and adolescents. 

About my practice

 When I think about my various clinical experiences in psychology, I think about the African proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child." The aspect of my job that I find most rewarding involves working with others to make a difference, whether it be with families, communities or other professionals. I am excited to work in the Kaiser Permanente Behavioral Health Department as I love being part of a system that strives to improve lives and give people hope. I am excited to continue my passion in providing care to children, adolescents and their families.

How I thrive

Being a mother and spending time with my family is very important to me. I also enjoy church, traveling to new places, music, knitting, attempting new arts and crafts projects, our family dog and having a good laugh.
