Welcome to AAHI, Michelle!
We would like to introduce our newest staff to the AAHI family, Michelle Pineda! Michelle is the Behavioral Health Program Coordinator and is responsible for informing the community about behavioral health and available resources. She also assesses the behavioral health needs of the Asian American community, while understanding the barriers to seeking mental health services. Michelle has a strong interest in social work and focus on the unique stressors faced by the Asian American population. She received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology and her Master of Social Work degree from Virginia Commonwealth University.
Fun fact: Michelle is a die-hard ice hockey fan! She loves watching and cheering on the Washington Capitals.
