Her goal is to always provide them with the dignity and respect that is often overlooked with their diagnosis. She has always enjoyed watching their transformation. She says, “they arrive to use at one of the hardest times in their lives and transform into the healthy members of our community.”

Amy’s favorite part of her position is mentoring the new nurses and teaching them about mental illness and substance abuse and watching them blossom in their career at Banyan.
