I am a psychiatrist who was working full time as a n inpatient psychiatrist during the '90s when I left my career In 2000 to raise two amazing girls.
I returned to medicine, specifically geriatric psychiatry inMay 2012 and worked as a consulting psychiatrist to nursing homes for two years. Although I loved the variety of patients and care settings, there was far too much (unpaid) driving involved. It was not financially feasible to continue.
I am on the eve of beginning a new position working for the State of Connecticut DMH, (a 10 min commute!) running one of five inpatient units at the State Forensic Hospital. Im extremely excited to see what my future holds!
