Thanks to SUA’s humanistic understanding that everyone has something unique to offer, I was able to hone my strengths, which was the boost of confidence I needed in order to excel —so that in turn I can help people heal, one person at a time!
I serve as the director for patient and professional relations at Plasticity Brain Centers. I am part of the operations & management team to help launch the company world-wide, and I am passionate about ensuring all patients have the warmest experience possible. We assist patients who have been dismissed by their doctors, whose traditional approaches didn’t work, or who wish to heal their brain without the use of medications or invasive procedures.
We see patients from all over the world, ranging from concussed professional athletes, to children on the spectrum, to traumatic injuries. I have seen a man walk for the first time in 25 years; witnessed a beautiful 6-year-old with autism say “mama” for the first time; and seen athletes regain their careers and go off to win Olympic medals. It’s truly a dream career!
I have so much appreciation for every person in my SUA journey that made my life possible, because this college education touches far more aspects than just your intellect. Attending SUA helped me finally rid myself of any feelings of inadequacy, and provided the education and tools to ask the right questions—ultimately giving me the confidence that I can achieve anything I set my mind to.
