What is the most inspiring part of your career?
The most inspiring part of being in this career field is seeing client's lead fulfilling lives.
Why did you choose to specialize/work in mental healthcare?
Growing up in a strict upbringing, Mental Health was somewhat an unexplored topic in my household because it was highly stigmatized and asking about it was considered a breach. As I advanced into my nursing career, my fascination about Mental Health also grew; once I became a psychiatric nurse, I knew I had found my niche and wanted to further my understanding. I hope to explore the uniqueness of each of my clients and assist in gaining insight into their own healing.
What are your interests outside of work?
