"Mom. Mama. Madre. Mother. These are all ways to describe the central unit of a family. Moms are the sweet jam in between two shortbread cookies, gently yet securely keeping the cookie intact, while also being the pivotal part that truly makes the cookie delicious.

"One of my main roles at Shadyside Family Health Center is to call depressed patients in between their visits to see how things are going. I’m able to provide support and encouragement, and to help problem-solve any barriers that might be limiting their treatment. It’s important for these patients to have another resource in between office visits and another person looking out for their mental health."
