Loving peace, I have long wanted to find a way to help people who are going through the difficulties that discord with others brings. After my first Ombuds class in 2013, I was hooked! I started the training required to make that happen. My initial basic and advanced mediation classes were with UNM Law School. In the following years, I mediated every chance I could find and took every mediation and communication class I could. Fast forward to today, I meditate in the 13th District court specializing in family mediation, including custody, divorce, parentage, child support, etc. I also mediate for the local Realtor Association, local businesses for both employee and contract disputes, and facilitate board and focus group meetings.
In addition to mediation, I am also a Chaplain for the Albuquerque Police Department and the Albuquerque Regional Community Chaplain Corps. I feel the mediation and Chaplaincy go hand in hand with helping people walk through trauma, or, drama. I am working on my degree in communication and plan on having that finished within the next few years. I have additional training in emergency management and peer-to-peer support for public safety, police, and fire personnel.
