Megan Brace, MSW Intern
What is your favorite restaurant?
My new favorite restaurant is the Basil Leaf Cafe – they have the BEST gluten free spaghetti and meatballs.
How do you like to relax and unwind after your workday?
I love to spend some time alone either stretching or going for a walk. I love finding a great movie to watch and cozying up in some comfies.
What is your favorite thing about your brain?
My brain is always going and loves to analyze. I love that my brain is open to all perspectives and helps me feel so deeply for others.
