Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I decided to become a mental health professional when I realized my life’s purpose: To be a beacon of hope and an agent of change.

What are your interests outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and ministering in dance at church.

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

Every day I pray to start my day.

Do you have any pets?

In December 2023, we adopted 2 sibling kittens. One evening, we couldn’t locate one of them after searching the house for over an hour including efforts to tempt him with food. We accidentally found him curled up sleeping in the back of the bottom drawer of my son’s bunk bed.
