Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

During my years in the human services field, I experienced enormous professional satisfaction from helping people work through complex life situations, heal from trauma and grief, and manage their range of emotions related to life transition changes.

What are your interests outside of work?

I love to cook and try new recipes. I am an avid reader and enjoy fiction and non-fiction literature. When my favorite authors are in town, I like to meet them and get them to autograph my books.

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

During the pandemic, I received a gift subscription to a mindfulness app, and since that time, it has become a morning ritual to rise early, listen to a guided meditation for 30 minutes, then have a cup of coffee. I also practice other short relaxation strategies throughout the day.

What book have you read more than once?

Mama Day by Gloria Naylor. This beautiful love story is infused with mysticism, struggle, and sacrifice centered around the beautiful sea islands off the coast of South Carolina.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

The Legal Defense Fund (LDF) because of its outstanding commitment to social justice.

How do you recharge?

I practice self-care daily and try to eat healthy, exercise, and make an effort to get enough sleep. I spend quality time with my husband and stay in touch with my family and friends.
