Rozlyn graduated with a degree in psychology and criminal justice, with a focus in correctional rehabilitation, from the University of Cincinnati in 2018. Her education in correctional rehabilitation is really what inspired her interest in integrative care- she figured there had to be a better way to meet people's individual needs in an unsupportive system. Her goal is to eventually run her own integrative center, using a whole-person approach, for those who have experience within the US prison system.

Within the Academy of Integrative Mental Health, Rozlyn oversees our social media presence, including content creation and promotional production. She also curates our live seminars, working to provide the most distinctive training environments. Rozlyn teams up with local, ethical businesses and vendors in each city we visit to create truly unique experiences that embody the Academy's Integrative Mission.
