Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I have always enjoyed learning about human behavior. Also, helping others is very rewarding to me.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy running, hiking, reading, going to the beach, watching movies and reading.

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

Exercise helps my mental and emotional well-being tremendously.

What book have you read more than once?

Tuesday with Morrie - I have always enjoyed working with older persons and end of life issues have always fascinated me as we most of us will be going through it at some point.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Nicklaus Children's Hospital - my youngest daughter (now 13 yrs old) was born very sick and the medical staff at Nicklaus (then called Miami Children's Hospital) saved her. The hospital was amazing not only because they saved our little girl, but because they provided housing for or family as well as activities in the play room for my then three year old.

How do you recharge?

I recharge by taking a walk or a run, being in nature, taking power nap or reading.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have one dog and three cats. I love to tell the story of how one of the cats taught the dog and other cat how to open the sliding door to get out of the house.
