Toledo Ohio

What is your favorite part of working in this field?

I love the challenge of the business side of things. Running a behavioral health company is not an easy task, but when you can figure it out for the betterment of your community, it’s fun! I absolutely love seeing parents and spouses trusting their addicted loved one again, and clients getting their children back. Watching a client achieve their goals, whatever that may be, is the best thing in the world. I personally like working with people who don’t necessarily want to be clean or sober when they arrive. Seeing the light bulb turn on and knowing that they understand some things about themselves is an empowering moment.

What would your message be to someone that is struggling to stay sober?

I would ask them the following… If drinking and using drugs is your answer to everything… what is your question? Change your attitude and you’ll change your life.

Medical Director

I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, which has molded me into an overly passionate Baltimore Ravens fan.

I attended Bucknell University for my undergraduate studies with a major in biology and A.T. Still University for medical school.

I am especially passionate about treating mental health and doing my part to erase the stigma attached to it.

Addiction runs in my family, and I have witnessed its devastating effects firsthand. Accordingly, I vow to treat every patient as if they are family and to treat them with the respect and compassion they deserve.

I grew up on a dairy farm in Southwest Ohio before becoming a Toledoan in 2013.

I attended the University of Toledo for both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees and began practicing medicine in 2019.

Professionally I am interested in the treatment of patients with substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders as well as providing whole-person health care to each patient as an individual.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing music with my husband, hiking and going for walks with our dog, and tending to my garden and many houseplants.

What is your favorite part of working in this field?

It’s always been about the people for me. We typically meet people at their lowest points, hear and share in their stories and their pain. But every small step of progress and growth, every moment of insight and clarity, every goal achieved makes every day, every struggle worth it. The potential impact our team can have on others is so powerful and to be a part of that healing process is the most rewarding part of working in behavioral health.
