Professional Accomplishments ( at least one):
What brought you to ISAND:
I was drawn to ISAND by the uniquely integrated service model. I saw a huge need for Interprofessional, team-based services to support individuals and families with complex needs in the community. I wanted to learn from and collaborate with other like-minded professionals in order to treat the whole child, which is exactly what ISAND has to offer.
What do you really like about ISAND:
I really like the ability to meet weekly with the team to problem solve and share information around client needs. In my experience, this is a process that many other private practice locations lack.
A little bit about who you are outside of ISAND – hobbies and interests
On my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and my rescue dog, Carla! We love to hike, swim and relax at the cottage in the summer, and enjoy skating, playing hockey and skiing in the winter.
