Role in Program: Consultant, Recovery to Practice

Professional Interests:
I am interested in understanding how stigma affects consumer recovery and social policy. I see myself as a kind of interpreter where I use my written, verbal, and analytic skills to help relate my personal experience with mental illness to others' experience, in the efforts to build collaborative relationships between people with behavioral health disorders and their healthcare providers. Other areas of interest include trauma-informed care, the importance of resiliency in one's personal recovery, and the positive effects validating pershood can have on persons living with psychosis.

Personal Interests:
Jogging, watching movies, reading, and listening to music.
