Education: California State University, Stanislaus
I grew up in Sonora, California, a super small town in the middle of gold country. I was always interested in different cultures and getting to know what motivates people. It’s the main reason I enjoy being in social work.
I enjoy working at Mountain Park because everyone is so helpful. My patients have so many resources available to them in the clinic, and I enjoy that we all focus on treating the whole person. I know that I’m not able to do my job for the patient if there are other health issues that I don’t know about, and by working together we can figure it all out. When it comes to issues our patients face I’ve pretty much heard it all, so I am totally non-judgmental.
I’ve lived in California and Arizona and also spent a few years living and working in London. Although I thought the language and culture there would be similar, it was a bit of a humbling and eye-opening experience for me. I learned a lot about people from other cultures and parts of the world. I still believe there’s a lot to learn!
When you have an appointment with me you can expect that I’ll be a good listener and get to know you as a person. We’ll work together to solve any problems your facing to keep you healthy!
