Because of her educational background, I will have the opportunity to become more astute to the collaboration of knowing which psychiatric medications interact negatively with medical medicines. Sandra is currently serving as the director over a children’s clinic. She also makes rounds in nursing homes and has a mental health clinic with her mother who is also a PMHNP. They both have been treating patients for thirty plus years.
