What do you actually do at work? I have two very different roles. I first have the amazing opportunity to be with others through their triumphs and pitfalls by offering outpatient mental health (“THERAPY”). Secondly, I spend an enormous amount of time on hold with insurance companies, documenting my every move in forms that no one will look at, and completing little administrative tasks.
Is your desk/office messy or organized? Organized. I am a firm believer of going paperless whenever possible. The toys and books in my office are in their place but in no specific order.
Are you a task-oriented person or a people-oriented person? People-oriented. I prefer to spend time with my patients, customers, colleagues, community members, family and friends.
Biggest indulgence/guilty pleasure? Donuts. I have to take detours to my office to avoid the fabulous bakeries in Central Minnesota.
What is your favorite way to waste time? Puzzles of all kinds. I love brain teasers, online puzzles and cardboard puzzles. I can’t stop until I finish the puzzle. Secondly, I love bad dad jokes and watch videos with bad dad jokes. My husband has requested that I stop sending him videos with bad jokes.
What is your biggest pet peeve? Shaky legs. I can’t stand someone sitting next to me shaking their leg. I have been blessed to be part of a family that has several shaky leg shakers.
Favorite vacation spot? I love to travel all over the U.S.A. and Canada. We take several road trips each year to new spots. My recent favorite was the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. My next wish list location is a hot air balloon ride in New Mexico.
What are three words that best describe you? Genuine, assertive, kind and collaborative
