Her strong affiliation with Visions’ current Program Director, Bill Hoban, MFT, and Visions’ Medical Director David Lewis, M.D., from her previous work at Anacapa Hospital, creates a unique, clinical synergy which helps facilitate Visions’ efficient and effective environment for recovering teens.

Her comprehensive work history, skills, and resolve reflect Visions’ dedication to an unparalleled recovery experience.
“It is rewarding to work with teens and their families here because I get to witness the results from the seeds planted during their stay. Over the years, I receive many phone calls from alumni family and clients. Hearing their stories, the journeys they have taken since their time at Visions is very inspiring. Working side by side with so many alumni after they choose to become part of the Visions staff make for some very surreal and amazing moments. These great moments keep me coming back to work each day with a great purpose.
