Why did you become a mental health professional?

During my high school years, I was introduced to psychology, which helped me understand and navigate through my own life challenges.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy scrapbooking, quality time with family and friends, volunteerism, quiet time and sometimes "doing" nothing.

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

Pray, hot shower/baths, maintaining healthy boundaries (I call this "protecting my peace"), and when time allows I watch "guilty pleasure" TV/movies. As often as possible, I find getting at least 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep is very helpful.

What book have you read more than once?

The Joy Luck Club

Favorite organization/non-profit?

I support several local and national non-profits including domestic violence shelters, Susan G. Komen and the American Heart Association.

How do you recharge?

Sleep, massages, disconnecting from social media/electronics/telephone on the weekends. Did I mention massages? :) I also feel livened after a good Italian meal.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, but it seems she may not realize she is a dog. We met her at 10 weeks old. I was skeptical initially because she was VERY active. She literally bounced around and through our legs and chased her shadow like a wild animal. I was exhausted just watching her. However, when my hubby would scooped her into his arms, she would immediately settled down and lay quietly until he put her down; at which point she resumed bouncing and chasing. Five years later, she's still here... bouncing, chasing and quietly laying when in our arms.
