My journey into the realm of mental health advocacy was sparked by a deeply personal experience. Upon returning from my service in Afghanistan as a member of the Army National Guard, I bore witness to the harrowing struggles that befell many of my comrades - battles against substance abuse, the weight of depression, and the haunting grip of PTSD. This firsthand exposure ignited a solemn oath within me: to empower myself with the tools necessary to aid veterans and individuals grappling with adversity. My dedication materialized into a multifaceted role as an addictions counselor and Social Worker - a vocation that resonates with profound intimacy. This mission is more than a career; it's an unwavering passion that fuels my purpose. I am a registered Yoga teacher who likes to integrate the calming of the central nervous systtem and a holistic approach to my practice. Beyond the realm of my professional pursuits, I find solace in the embrace of my family and the companionship of animals. Balancing the intensity of my work, I relish the joy of attending sporting events and concerts, nurturing the vibrant tapestry of my life.
