Fun Facts

Beyond the Therapy Room

Favorite self-care activity?

Nature and the sea! When I need to feel rejuvenated and relaxed a day by the sea or a hike on a trail fills my cup again. Engaging all of my senses and taking a pause to admire the small wonders around me. Growing up in Miami the beach was a definite go to.

Favorite book as a teen?

It's a tie between the 'Left Behind Series' and 'A Child Called It'. These books weren't just page-turners, they really stuck with me.

Favorite stress-busting technique as a teen?

As an FFA/4H member, spending time with my animals was my oasis of peace. I raised goats, lambs, pigs, and chickens, and each brought its own unique sense of joy. Playing basketball and immersing myself in books were also my treasured stress-relief strategies.
