Why did you become a mental health professional?

I became a mental health therapist because I wanted to help erase the stigma that people of color cannot talk about mental health struggles or seek treatment. I continued my education and went back to nursing school because I want to become a Psychiatric NP. I want to continue to reach people of color by expanding my clinical abilities and support that medication management should also be encouraged and explored.

What are your interests outside of work?

I love to travel my favorite trip to date has been Roatan Island in Honduras, and the time I spent in Costa Rica. I love to cook and bake, at Christmas time you can find me in the kitchen making 300+ Christmas cookies.

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

I spend a few minutes each day completing a mindful practice whether its a daily reflection or prayer. I also try to exercise at least 5 days a week it helps me feel centered.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

The Loveland Foundation is an organization that supports women of color receive therapy. They provide up to 12 vouchers a year for women in need to receive therapy free of charge. I also have a deep love for the Trevor Project, I firmly believe in intersectionality and showing up for other communities, even though I am not a part of the LGBTQ community, I consider myself a strong ally who continues her education. The Trevor Project is is the world's largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for the LGBTQ community.
