In her free time, you’ll often find Sloan with a crochet hook in hand. She learned crocheting from her Oma and other maternal figures and she’s been proudly doing it for the last 10 years. Crocheting is her creative sanctuary, where she can let her imagination run wild and bring intricate patterns to life with every stitch. On the flip side, hiking ignites Sloan’s sense of adventure. There’s something exhilarating about exploring new trails, breathing in the fresh air, and soaking in the beauty of untouched landscapes. These two pursuits form the perfect balance of relaxation and exhilaration in Sloan’s life.

Sloan is under the Supervision of Dr. Mary Ann Andrade-Bekker, PsyD, LCPC.
