Tell us a little bit about your career experience.
I was employed for 16.5 years in the Partial Hospitalization Program, with Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute. I worked in the group rooms with children and adolescents, and I worked as a resource coordinator for the program. I earned certification as a Nationally Certified Psychiatric Technician Level 4.
What do you do at the PHP?
As the assistant case manager, I support the daily activities of the case managers. I will be starting drug testing, checking for test frequency accuracy, process and review results, inform team of results, and other duties to support the PHP team.
Why do you think the work being done at the PHP is so important?
The PHP team works together to support participants and help participants succeed returning to a healthy lifestyle, as well as returning to their chosen health care careers. When the participants are healthy, they can provide safe and effective care to the public.
Please share a personal “fun fact.”
For the last six years, I have been involved in working with Stand For the Silent, by educating the community regarding bullying. In 2015, my husband and I started the non-profit Crusaders Against Bullying – SFTS. Also, I am involved with Fogleman’s Wounded Warrior Music Festival, which is a yearly event to raise funds to support the Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors Project. I have been volunteering since the event started in 2013. I enjoy being creative, baking, gardening, canning food, and spending time with my family and friends.
