Haillie Vanderlinden is an Administrative Assistant and is in the process of finishing her psychology degree at Mt. Mercy University. Once finished, she plans to enroll in their Marriage and Family Therapy Graduate Program and become a licensed therapist.
Helpful and Positive
It is important to her to be a welcoming and positive presence. This is perfect for her role, as she is often the first person people see when they walk in. This can make a huge difference for people, especially if they are nervous or haven’t been to therapy before.
In addition, she is naturally a helpful person and enjoys solving problems and offering resources. You could say she is a cheerleader because she loves offering encouragement and seeing others achieve their goals. She strives to be a light for people in their darkness.
Mental Health Matters
Haillie wants to do her part in creating a world where mental health is normalized and doesn’t carry a stigma. She wants her friends and family to feel safe talking about it, because we all have struggles. For instance, Haillie has experienced anxiety and body dysmorphia in her life, but knows that it doesn’t define her.
Outside of work, Haillie enjoys playing sand volleyball, hiking, traveling, reading books, and spending time with her dog.
