Doniesha Wade, Program Counselor

How long have you worked at Peninsula? 2 years

Why do you love working at Peninsula? I enjoy working at Peninsula because I have an opportunity to help patients who are experiencing a crisis in his or her life.  It is very rewarding to see the patients achieve their goals. It’s also rewarding to see the patients smile.  A lot of patients arrive with nothing and don’t know where to begin, so it is rewarding to help them through their crisis situation.  I also love working at Peninsula because I am able to work side by side with other great program counselors and nurses.  I love the people I work with.  They are all hard working individuals and caring people. 

Where are you from? Knoxville, Tennessee

If you could have dinner with anyone, alive or dead, who would it be? I would have to say Maya Angelou or Iyanla Vanzant

What is your favorite food? Lemon Pepper or Bourbon Salmon

Do you prefer Cats or Dogs?  Dogs
