DEARBORN, MICHIGAN, August 8, 2014 (PR Web): Shama Mehta didn't expect her life to change the day she interviewed for a volunteer services position at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn. After being downsized from an administrative position with her previous employer, she knew she wanted to work in an environment where she could help other people. Mehta, a 30-year-old devout Hindu from Livonia, never considered chaplaincy and she certainly wasn't prepared for how the journey would impact her life.

A naturally enthusiastic, ambitious and positive person, Mehta has since completed her training as a hospital chaplain and is taking the final steps to receive her certification as a Board Certified Chaplain. She is now a permanent member of the Oakwood Spiritual Support staff, making it only one of two programs in in the entire country whose commitment to diversity has resulted in having Clinical Pastoral Education certified chaplains in each of the four major faiths: Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Jewish.
