“The best part of my job is being able to utilize my experience to help other clinicians, while continuing to learn from them as well. I enjoy working closely with the other departments to maintain a cohesive treatment team and being a presence on the lodges for extra support as needed. I also enjoy working with our management team to help Timberline provide the best quality treatment to our residents.”
