I was at an NASW Conference (Oct 2016) and met Dr. Harris. She was giving a lecture on EMDR and after that I knew I wanted to study under her guidance. It was also a dream of mine to attend Baylor, Once I attended a Preview Day , I knew this was the only place for me.

Unique characteristics about yourself
I spent 10 years in the United States Military. Five in the U.S. Navy and five in the U.S. Army. I joined the military because I did not believe I was college material, and after the encouragement of my wife, I decided to face my fears, and will soon be a graduate of my dream university.
