I had a family member who for years battled addiction which stemmed from an untreated anxiety disorder. Watching their repeated, though often fruitless efforts to move forward, I resolved to study psychology and drug dependency in order to find concrete solutions. When I combined my natural administrative skills with the clinic’s need to manage daily operations, it was the perfect match.
