A brief summary of your experience: 

I began my career in this field in 2014 after I graduated with my bachelor’s in Psychology; I later received my MSW in 2020 before acquiring my LCSW in 2022. My experience ranges from working with the Department of Children and Families, Lutheran Services of Florida, Hope healthcare, Park Royal and VitalCore health Strategies to name a few. I have worked with abused and neglected children to adults who struggle with mental health and substance abuse as well as individuals who are at the end of life. My experience in these various roles has assisted me in becoming the rounded and empathetic individual I am today in both my personal and professional life. 

What made you get into this field? 

I grew up with a single mother and watching her struggle to care for my sister and I but still manage to help anyone in need, even with her last dime, has been my main motivation to get in this field and positively impact anyone I come in contact with.

What do you love most about your job? 

My favorite thing about my job is that I am able to show up as my true authentic self and still be able to adapt to my work environment and contribute to positive changes in both our clients and my coworkers.

What do you like most about Calusa? 

I love the positive energy that is felt when you enter the building and the fact that the team is a family makes you feel like you are a part of it. 

What do you do for fun? 

For fun, I enjoy lifting weights 6 days a week at the gym and day/weekend trips to Disney!
