Sydnee is entering her third year working with M&M. She currently goes to Baker College, majoring in psychology, to obtain her bachelor's degree. Her time with the students was unfortunately cut short due to the pandemic after her first year, so it was nice to reestablish and build relationships when everyone came back.

She loves spending time with the students, laughing, playing games, while also helping them advance in their own lives.
