Why I Work at Gaudenzia:
While working in the healthcare field, I recognized the importance of quality treatment for individuals with untreated or poorly treated substance use and mental health conditions. It was challenging for medical healthcare facilities to navigate behavioral health facilities, so I began splitting my professional time to gain knowledge and insight. I quickly recognized the enormous impact and footprint Gaudenzia has in the treatment community. My background in internal medicine, medical toxicology, and addiction medicine was a perfect fit. I started dedicating more of my time to Gaudenzia and all its endeavors. The rest is history.
