I love presenting all of MHP’s trainings. I like helping clinicians advance their skills to help clients and I like training community members to be able to help their neighbors. It’s an honor for me to be able to work with individuals as they learn and grow in ways to manage their mental health challenges. I have always really loved learning, and teaching is the best way to learn! I’m always trying to learn, as I also am an Intervention Instructor and an American Red Cross Instructor. I love teaching, and through my experiences with MHP I’ve had the chance to see this talent of mine grown. It’s satisfying to have an impact on others. When I’m not training people in our community you can find me hiking and being in nature, traveling or cooking ethnic food.
