What is your motto or personal mantra?
My personal mantra is to always be humble and kind. Everyone’s story is different and to be helpful to our patients we should enter with open arms and an unjudgmental mind. Kind words and a warm smile go a long way.
What do you like most about your job?
I love having the ability to help people find the best version of themselves. As cliché as it sounds I truly like the services field, it fulfills my personal goals and satisfaction to help others who are battling the disease of addiction.
What makes Footprints to Recovery stand out?
What stood out to me at Footprints to Recovery is that it is not a “cookie cutter” facility. Our staff takes the time and effort to meet the patients needs by tailoring their wants to a specific program. For example, we can take a more holistic approach to provide them with better coping mechanisms other than strictly medicinal; such as: yoga, acupuncture and chiropractic services.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
What gets me out of bed in the morning is knowing that I can help people surpass their addiction and help them understand the importance of recovery. Each day I have a chance to impact a patient’s life in a way that is going to help them become a better version of themselves.
What does a typical day look like for you and what are you currently working on?
Being new to Footprints a typical day for me lately has been observing and learning the day to day operations in our facility. Currently I am working on gathering information for our LGBTQ track which I feel is a growing necessity and it is something that holds a personal importance to me.
What message to you wish you could provide family, friends, or addicts around the world?
With the current epidemic surrounding us, the message I offer to anyone and everyone around the world is a message is of hope. Sometimes it’s hard to turn a page in life, and to teach them to never believe that there isn’t a solution to help find their way back into society.
