I could be referred to as a late bloomer. After high school, I lived a fairly unsettled life. Traveling, working multiple odd jobs, moving often, and making lots of mistakes. I also found entry-level work in children’s residential services, and as an aide in special education classrooms. It did not take long to realize that this work is who I am. So, I went back to school, while working full time, graduating with my Masters in Social Work degree from Boston College. I am a firm believer in mind, body, spirit all playing a role in our overall well-being, and truly enjoy working collaboratively in the health care setting. I know it can be difficult to ask for help, so I consider it a privilege to be a part of helping people work through challenges their facing.
