Shalom Cherian MSN, ARPN, FNP-BC
Shalom studied at UNC Chapel Hill for undergrad and continued on to East Carolina University for her Masters.
Her favorite part about working in mental health is best summed up by the following: "C.S. Lewis one of my favorite authors said “Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken.” The ability to impact and help make meaningful change for patients who deal with the hardest challenges is humbling and rewarding.
In her spare time you can find her enjoying traveling, and exploring new places locally and abroad with my family, catching up on the Great British baking Show on Netflix, attempting to bake on the weekends (the key word being “attempting”), and cheering on the Tarheels during Basketball season!
