“I knew at a young age that I wanted to pursue a career in behavioral health as the social service aspect of care has always intrigued me and I have always had a desire to help others. My first position in social services was in inpatient services and, over the course of my career, I am grateful for the value and purpose the work I do has given me. Today, I enjoy applying my many years of experience, teaching, and guidance to my position at Sound Community Services.”

“I enjoy spending my down time with my family, my grandchildren, and I am an avid jigsaw fanatic. Spicy foods, with a little kick and character, are my favorite dishes. Also, I am looking forward to a new rescue puppy joining our family and am excited to have a new walking partner.”
