I was born in Washington, D.C. (USA) to American parents & raised in Montgomery County, MD. I am an occupational therapist by profession. I also have a degree in Educational Psychology. Writing & sharing my writings with others is one of my passions. Another is human engagement & interaction. For nearly 8 years, I served as the Public Relations VP/Chair for Maryland Occupational Therapy Association while simultaneously working as a clinician & for nearly 2 years, served as 1 of a few treating therapists on a Patient Advocates Team alongside the hospital's CEO, DOR, DON, Director of Nutrition, etc. A desire to help refugees inspired my creation of ONEon1 Day. In 2017 & 2018, much of my time was voluntarily spent with refugees in Germany. Having a better understanding of Islam, reflecting on, & talking about how Allah's/God's guiding words apply to our current reality & solve societies' problems are what I spend time on daily. Proficiency in Arabic & German is a goal I'm pursuing.
My vision is that all human beings will live cohesively in justice and in peace wherever they are in the world.
