After years of working in the mental health industry, I began to see a bigger need to help people with their struggles. My desire to aid individuals in simplifying their life experiences in a new way became stronger and stronger. I decided to venture into the telehealth world to be able to reach out to more people with this new platform.
I enjoy doing things with my family. I enjoy baking, physical activity, and exploring new areas through travel.
I enjoy cooking for my family and exercising on a regular basis.
The Four Agreements, By: Don Miguel Ruiz. This is my "go to" book for all things. It all comes back to these 4 agreements that I not only live by but I encourage and help incorporate in the people I work with.
I love locally supported brick and moarter shops. Especially ones with coffee. I love to drink coffee and support local organizations of all kinds. Additionally, I often volunteer to organizations supporting children, such as Big Brothers, and Big Sisters.
I recharge by relaxing. I enjoy a quick dip in my hot tub, watching a good movie with my family or a quick meditation in a pinch.
I have a dog. She is a 65 pound pit bull that believes she is a 10 pound lap dog. She is always doing funny things to make sure we are paying attention to her. Most recently she dug through her "toy bin" and found her favorite bone which she now carries all over the house "squeaking" away.
