What inspired you to become a Counselor?
I became a counselor because it amazes me how resilient people are. Even through the toughest challenges, I have seen people still find a way to smile and survive whether they are aware of it or not. To be able to witness this and help along the way has always been my dream, and I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else.
What is your philosophy on patient care?
My philosophy to patient care is to always put the client first. In addition to that, I want to always make sure the client feels seen, heard, and validated.
What made you interested in St. Hope?
I became interested in St. Hope because they have a lot of the same values as I do when it comes to patient care. It’s important for me to work with a company who values and takes care of their patients.
