She wants to be remembered for making a difference in someone’s day, guiding her daily interactions and fuelling her passion for her work. “It doesn’t matter how small, or for how long I can help someone, as long as they leave a session with me just a little better, a little more hopeful, then I’ll be happy,” she explains.
