Pronouns

she/her

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I wanted to decrease the stigma of mental health.

What are your interests outside of work?

I make a family outing a priority especially with having two teenage girls.

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

I always create "me time" at the end of the work day, whatever that looks like, sitting in silence, drinking coffee or tea, going for a walk.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Grow Your Potential. It's a non-profit organization who attends to sliding scale clients. They have pro-bono spots as well to those in need.

How do you recharge?

I jog and if I can't jog I try to go on walks

Do you have any pets?

I have a Maltese named Coco. Coco is the cutest and every time we take him for a walk, he barks in excitement jumping on us. He gets so excited that it's difficult for us to put on his leash.
