Why did you choose mental health care as a career path?
“Humans and our brains are fascinating. I enjoy learning about human behavior, the way our brains work, and how we interact with each other and the world. I am passionate about empowering people to work towards positive change in their life, and it is incredibly rewarding and humbling to be a part of that journey. I feel fortunate to be able to work in a field where I can continue to learn, be challenged, and be inspired every day.”
