What makes me unique:
My ability to persevere through hardships. I was a teen parent and worked hard to not become another statistic. Also, my uncanny ability to be a total goofball at any given moment.
Why do I practice healthcare:
I believe that much of our wellbeing comes from the mind/body connection. Working in healthcare gives me the ability to focus on that dual approach in order to help my clients achieve their desired goals and live a fulfilling life.
