I have been at Manhattan Total Health since… October of 2011.
In my free time, I like to… Cook, garden and knit.
When I’m not at MTH, you can find me… In my garden.
I love what I do because… It fulfills my life’s mission, which is to help other while I’m here.
If I could give one piece of advice, it would be… Follow your bliss!
