What do you do at the PHP?  

Every day is a little different. Mainly, I help answer phones and make sure the needs of participants are being met. This could mean completing check-in calls, connecting participants to resources or talking with providers.

Why do you think the work being done at the PHP is so important?

I believe those suffering from substance use disorders and mental health are often an overlooked population. I believe this work is meaningful because it helps give people a chance to succeed.

Please share a personal “fun fact”

I am a big road tripper. I have been on road trips to Nashville, TN; Pigeon Forge, TN; New Orleans, LA; Kalamazoo, MI; and Ohio. I like road trips because you get to hit a bunch of different places in one trip and never get bored with one locale.
