Born in Romania, I moved to Jacksonville, Florida years ago at the young age of thirteen. While working with chronically ill patients in the intensive care unit as a registered nurse, I discovered my love for mental health and decided to pursue a career as a psychiatric nurse practitioner. I earned a Master’s degree in Nursing from Jacksonville University. My goal is to help those with mental health needs in the best way I can because I truly believe that mental health is just as important as physical health. I enjoy meeting people and getting to help them in any way that I can.
