Why did you choose healthcare as a career path: I started an internship while still in graduate school at the Addiction Center of Broome County (ACBC) in New York. While there, I worked mainly with addiction recovery and trauma and fell in love with the work, so I stayed for the next four years until moving down to Florida. I saw the stigma that comes along with mental health and substance use firsthand. I also got trained to utilize Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), and other trauma therapies I still utilize today. Now, as a mental health therapist at Langley Health Services, I incorporate the knowledge and experience I gained from ACBC and always aim to learn more every day.
