Why did you become a mental health professional?

My decision to become a social worker was born out of my deep passion for social change and creating a career around making a difference in the lives of others, both on an individual and collective community level. I find working with and supporting people in a therapeutic role to be most rewarding when I can assist people in reconnecting with and trusting themselves.

What are your interests outside of work?

I have been teaching group fitness classes for the past 15 years, which offers me an opportunity to support others in finding a love of movement, as well as a new comfort level and strength in their body-mind-spirit. Exercise is my primary means of caring for my mental health and joy.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

Besides exercise, I love spending relaxed time with my husband, my 2 cats, and enjoying good food and coffee. Naps are also high on the list to reset and recharge, as well as listening to music.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

My favorite non-profits are the animal shelters where I've gotten my dogs and cats over the years. I can't imagine my life without the unconditional love these amazing beings have given to me and want to support the organizations doing such important animal welfare work.
