I have been studying and working in the mental health field since 2006. My life has been so touched by emotional- and mental-health issues that I have dedicated my career efforts toward bringing peace and healing to those who most need it. I believe in demolishing the stigma around mental health treatment: Nobody asks for these kinds of challenges and nobody deserves to be judged for them.
I'm not a brown-noser (okay, maybe I am, but not literally!)...it's camo stick. I lost a bet at a formal dinner with my military friends.
I was raised by (three!) military parents and have traveled and lived overseas in southeast Asia. I have many close friends who have served at least two tours in the Middle East, both officers and enlisted. I actively volunteer for an organization that helps bring mental healthcare to veterans and active military families, as I am very passionate about this area of mental health.
