Animo Sano Psychiatry team is growing. We’re excited to welcome our new LCSW, Lauren Easley! We had the pleasure to talk with Lauren about her life and experience and learn more about what motivated her to become a part of our team. Here’s Lauren’s inspiring story.
1. What inspired you to pursue a career in healthcare and what brought you to Animo Sano Psychiatry?

2. What motivates you?
Supporting clients as they confront their own stories and walking alongside them as they bravely take steps to change their future is hugely motivating and rewarding to me.
