Why I chose Pine Rest: I thoroughly enjoyed my interview here. Everyone was extremely kind to my wife and me, and seemed genuinely happy with the program. The faculty, staff and other residents were easy to talk to and gave me honest answers to my questions. The city of Grand Rapids was a ton of fun and seems to offer plenty of interesting things to do. In summary, it felt like home.

Other interests: I enjoy rock climbing, and I am a member at a local bouldering gym here in Grand Rapids. I also enjoy hiking/camping, and I have been exploring the Huron-Manistee National Forest’s many hiking trails over the past year.

Professional or Clinical Interests: Adult Inpatient Psychiatry and ACT teams.
