What do you enjoy most about your job?

I enjoy working with people and helping them work towards their personal recovery goals. It gives me joy to see people overcoming addictions and figuring out different coping mechanisms to help them succeed. When you see them apply these lessons to every day life situations and they can truly see the strength you helped them find within themselves, you feel rewarded for all of your hard work and dedication. Seeing those patients lead positive, meaningful lives is what keeps us moving forward and helps keep us focused on our professional and sometimes even our personal goals.

When not at work, what are some of your favorite things to do?

I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling around the world. I also enjoy playing music and love craft projects.
