When discussing her experience with BHSA, she states that her experience “continues to be positive. It is a very supportive work environment…It is great working with clinicians with years of experience working in different clinical settings and that have many different areas of expertise. It is also good to see that many of the staff are bilingual in Spanish which expands the client population that can be served.” Rene shared that her favorite channel is HGTV. She enjoys watching the transformation of homes and seeing people select places to live.
