Shumaila (Shu) Salim received her B.S. Degree in Nutritional Sciences from California State University, Los Angeles. Since 2016, she has worked in hospitals, residential treatment, outpatient treatment, and to now, admissions. She has worked with adolescents and adults with various needs. Shu’s love to help others started in 2014 when she started volunteering for non-profit organizations. From going to AA/NA meetings to tackling their eating disorders, she has been through it all. Working in various settings inspired Shu to help clients better themselves. Seeing them progress and overcome their struggles was the biggest inspiration and reason that she is a big advocate for mental health. Knowing that the work she does helps individuals and families are so important and fulfilling to her. Shu’s approach on her role as an admissions coordinator is to welcome people with no judgment and support them during the process of entering treatment. Shu loves making this process as simple as possible for clients and families, so they have less to worry about. In and out of work, Shu practices living mindfully and hopes to continue pursuing education on mental health and mindful practices.
