Ms. León believes everyone should take the time to care for themselves in order to continue juggling all the other roles they fill, a belief that motivated her to pursue the field of mental health. As the daughter of Peruvian immigrants, Ms. León feels grateful to utilize her language abilities in an effort to help expand access to such care across diverse communities.
