What is the most inspiring part of your career?
The most inspiring part of my career is the opportunity to contribute to the society I live in. The ability to make a difference and to improve the quality of life for others, which for me is more of a calling than a career.
Why did you choose to specialize/work in mental healthcare?
Mental wellness has always been something that I find fascinating. Learning how the brain works and how it impacts one's daily activities. I enjoy knowing that I can use my empathy and compassion to offer them support in challenging times.
What are your interests outside of work?
I love traveling and I try to visit one or two new countries every year. Traveling allows me to adapt to new situations and use my organization and planning skills to ensure I have the most fun I can. It also gives me some time off to distress and resume work reenergized.
What’s the last book you read?
Becoming by Michelle Obama
