Hey there, my name is Marisa Smith and I am a physician assistant in psychiatry with a passion to heal and bring about positive change. As a psychiatric physician assistant, I work in outpatient clinics and am able to assess, diagnose, and treat mental illness. I have attended several universities and my family teases me about having as many degrees as a thermometer.
I am a mother of two boys and a wife to my heaven-sent, and wouldn’t be who I am today without the man upstairs! As a working mother, it is important to keep a solid support group and have an outlet. There are a number of trials and triumphs that I have encountered along the way, and the appropriate balance of faith and self-care helped me through. Helping others be mindful of their emotional/physical wellbeing brings me joy. I created RealTalkIdentity to blog about my passions while touching others along the way. IDentity’s mission is to encourage and empower young women to discover their God-given identity, renew the mind daily, and become the best version of YOU that He created you to be! In my blog, I offer valuable mental health tips, confidence-boosting encouragement, and relatable motherhood experiences.
