What is the most inspiring part of your career?
The most inspiring part of my career is being able to be a part of my client's growth and success in accomplishing their goals.
Why did you choose to specialize/work in mental health?
I chose to specialize in mental health because I enjoy helping others and most of all being able to guide individuals in recognizing their full potential. Mental health challenges exist and I felt entering this field as a professional would allow me to advocate, guide, and support individuals in their mental health journey.
What are your interests outside of work?
I enjoy painting, playing all kinds of sports (even if I may not be good at some of them), exercising, walks/hiking, self care, cooking, traveling.
