A little about me

The majority of my professional experience has taken place in supportive housing settings, working with those with severe mental illness and substance abuse issues. This has taught me the value of a strong client-centered, strengths-based approach and the importance of using a trauma-informed lens. I look forward to using my experiences to aid my work with patients at the Institute for Family Health.

Why I love my job

I love what I do because I get to develop meaningful and impactful relationships with a range of people.
