Kids: a puppy!
City you live in: Paradise Valley, AZ
A typical day in my life includes… an early morning, accompanied by a cup of coffee, while working through some of my business’ administrative tasks. I always try to have a good breakfast before I get my day going. Throughout the day, I’m usually working on several different things in between seeing patients and attending my child psychiatry fellowship training activities. In the afternoon, I take a with my husband and our puppy. Our evenings usually consist of making a HelloFresh dinner and hanging out on the couch together.
I was born… in Cleveland, Ohio and lived through 14 long winters there before moving to a warmer climate.
My favorite thing about Arizona…is the incredible evening sunsets.
I’m listening to…different entrepreneurial podcast shows.
My family…is extremely close to each other! I hope they will move to Arizona someday.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…a group of like-minded, female, small business owners
One thing I cannot live without…is my laptop. I am guilty of working around the clock.
When I was younger, I wanted to be…an event planner.
I’m inspired by…other physician entrepreneurs. This led me to start my concierge psychiatry practices, as I wanted to deliver a high level of care to our local community. I found other psychiatrists and clinicians who shared similar passions and created a wellness center in Scottsdale, Arizona, where clients could receive mental health, nutrition, and skin care services all in one location.
The one person who motivates me is…myself. I am a big believer that the sky is the limit for self-driven and motivated people
If I could change anything in the world, it would be…the way the healthcare system is structured.
The perfect day would be…getting to sleep in, make breakfast with my husband, and enjoy a relaxing spa day.
My first job was…stocking shelves in a gift shop in Cleveland, Ohio.
My favorite escape…is traveling!
My life…never gets boring, as I’m constantly trying to find new services to offer to the community and ways to improve my current systems in place.
I’m currently working on…opening a second concierge psychiatry practice in San Diego, called La Jolla Concierge Psychiatry. In this second location, it is a physician-only practice consisting of psychiatrists providing direct mental health services to patients through a concierge model of care.
Always…striving to do my best
Favorite Quote… “My biggest motivation? Just to keep challenging myself. I see life almost like one long University education that I never had — everyday I’m learning something new.” – Richard Branson
Biggest Dream…is moving to San Diego in a few years to live close to my family.
My Pet Peeve(s)…is entitlement.
