Why I chose Pine Rest: I really felt like Pine Rest would prepare me best for attending life. I felt that I would get experience on specialized units which many psychiatric hospitals throughout the country do not have. It was an extra plus that it’s close to family, has a history of great camaraderie, and is near the beach.

Other interests: I enjoy going out to dinner with friends/ family and spending time playing rec league football and kickball with my co-residents.
