"Develop a negative into a positive picture."
This is a line from my favorite song and ever since I heard that line when I was 11 years old, it has echoed throughout my life. The idea of making the best out of a situation informs my belief that everyone is entitled to their best life and we are all a work in progress. As such, this belief shapes my scholarship, mentorship, clinical approach, teaching, service, and advocacy.
