1. What inspired you to pursue a career in healthcare and what brought you to Animo Sano Psychiatry?
Taking care of people and making them feel better is rewarding. I chose a career in healthcare to be there for people when they do not feel their best, and all they need is empathy and listening ears. With a career in healthcare, I can help improve people’s health through teaching and advocating. I am drawn to Animo Sano psychiatry because it prides itself in not only providing high quality care. Animo prioritizes spending quality time with each client to understand their needs and create individualized treatment plans. Animo Sano also takes the welfare of its employees seriously.

I am motivated by learning and teaching others.
3. Tell us something about you that would surprise us?

4. What words of wisdom do you live by?

5. Share a recent “proud moment.”
