Why did you choose mental health as a career path?
A native resident of North Carolina, I grew up on a family farm in a rural community. The impact of stress on mental health, and the lack of quality mental health services in rural areas, was notable to me. I firmly believe in the strength of family and communities, and I strive to work in concert with these systems.
