What made you want to work in this field? 

Watching and experiencing human suffering and grief sparked my desire to work in the mental health field. I wanted to play a role in reducing suffering and grief for others.

What do you believe makes AIM stand out in its field, and why?

The personal touch and passion our team brings to the work we do is what makes AIM: Advaita Integrated Medicine stand out. Our team’s actions are thoughtful – all the way from our founder’s decisions and involvement to the office space where we deliver care. Everything is done with intention and compassion.

What does your ideal day look like? 

My ideal day would consist of enjoying a great morning coffee with my husband and kids with a view. Follow that up with a hike in Acadia National Park and a lobster roll at Red’s Eats.

Can you name one role model you have, and why that person has had such an impact?

My mother. I call her my superhero in a suit. She was a trailblazer for women in business and healthcare leadership while being the best mom. She’s the leader in healthcare and the mother I want to be.

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

The best piece of advice I ever received was definitely from my dad. He encouraged me to pick a profession that was a personal passion so I could find joy in my work. He always told us to wake up early and do something – you can sleep when you die.

What is is one thing you want our patients to know?

You matter. No matter where you go or what you do – you matter.
