Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I have always tried to help others my whole life. It was a natural fit.

What are your interests outside of work?

Working out, hiking, riding my motorcycle, and traveling.

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

I walk my dog every day and try to workout at least 5 times per week.

What book have you read more than once?

On the Road by Jack Kerouac. It highlights the thrill of traveling, living carefree, and enjoying life.

How do you recharge?

Exercise, eating well, spending time with family and friends.

Do you have any pets?

I have a Boston Terrier. His name is Poe. He is the best dog in the world, according to me. My favorite dog story is when I was a child, we had a small dog. The dog absolutely hated the mailman. At times she would run at full force into the window and jar the mailman. I am sorry that he had this experience but I cannot help but to laugh when I think about it.
