What is a personal challenge that you have overcome in your own life?
I wouldn’t say I’ve necessarily overcome anything, but I’m learning to manage grief around multiple losses that happened for me around the same time in my life (the end of a long term relationship, a job, and multiple family members). I’m working hard to be gentle with myself and others, accept help from loved ones, and to accept that I heal in my own time.
What have you learned from your work?
That we as humans have everything we need within ourselves to manage stressful situations and survive (even when we don’t believe it).
What is your favourite thing about working closely with people every day?
Socializing! Sharing life stories, adventures, food recommendations, self-care tips and compassion. This helps sustain me in helping work.
