What is the most inspiring part of your career?
Often times we are meeting individuals during the worst days of their lives. I find fulfillment in meeting these individuals on their mental health journey, and offering them the hope, support, and accessibility they need and deserve.
Why did you choose to specialize/work in mental healthcare?
Growing up in a community that was greatly impacted by mental illness, substances use, poverty, and a significant lack of access to care has fostered my path to be part of the change our society needs.
What are your interests outside of work?
Spending time outdoors, running, and traveling.
What’s the last book you read?
