“I’ve found great purpose in my work serving people with due compassion because of what their lives are representative of to me. I enjoy meaningful conversation about what a person treasures. Without the ability to convey one’s thoughts clearly in conversation, it can make learning about a person challenging. This is why I find interest in treating psychosis, a condition that can strip cognitive capabilities. In my personal life, I enjoy: singing with my church’s congregation, studying the Bible, helping new neighbors feel welcome in my town, playing team and Winter sports, and cooking in my kitchen to the rich sound of violin and piano instrumentals.”
