When I was growing up I wanted to be a standup comedian, I would sit and write jokes to test them on my friends and family. As I got older I realized that I really just enjoy connecting with people, which led me to the healthcare field. I am a first generation college student both in my immediate and extended family, which was a huge accomplishment for me. I have lived in Arizona all my life and I love it because there is so much to do and lots of outdoor adventures to be had, all within a day’s drive. Camping is one of my favorite things to do in my down time. There are so many great hiking spots, camping sites and lakes to enjoy in our beautiful state.
I am passionate about play and fun as part of health and wellbeing for kids and families. I came to work for Mountain Park because I wanted to be part of a team that understands the importance of treating the whole person and does a great job doing so. As a behavioral health provider for Mountain Park I strive to help each patient find the reasons why taking positive steps for their health is important to them, and support them as they do so.
