I enjoy presenting and providing education on mental health-related topics. I truly enjoy helping people build healthy work environments and healthy personal lives.

I bring a caring and calming presence, as well as a warm and nonjudgmental approach.

Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day?
I'm a lifelong learner and enjoy learning from and about the people I care for each day. I love that no two days are ever the same.
