What drew you to CWFM and/or Yakima?

I have always loved mountains but never lived near any! My interview at CWFM was my first time visiting Washington, and if the amazing training opportunities hadn’t sold me, the scenery would have. The BH internship program here checked all my boxes, and the organization is firmly united on the importance of integrated care.


Personal Interests/Hobbies:

When I’m not playing with my sweet mutt, Ango, I enjoy live music, kayaking, theater, trivia, traveling, karaoke, and really any activity involving general silliness and/or laughter!
