As a practicing music therapist, doctor, researcher, lecturer, speaker, professional association member, and author, I engage with music therapy in a variety of ways. In all of my activities and responsibilities, I want to continue to learn, research, and understand. I aim to further the understanding of musical therapy for myself and others.
