I have been working for mental health for 2 years, one year in residential with mental health teen girls. I worked in the school system for about 20 yrs from elementary to high school. I am a licensed hairstylist and have been for 5 years. I am a proud mother of three young men; 22, 18, and 14. I got into Psychiatric Rehabilitation right after the passing of my father who suffered from a mental illness and for years was misunderstood by so many. I wanted to get to work and help stop the stigma. Becoming a CPMC also helps in that as well.
