My professional experience over the past twenty years has concentrated on children, teenagers and families. I have worked in both agency and school settings. As a result, I am familiar with how families and individuals often require collaboration across settings between service providers. I am committed to working with other providers to ensure success.
My approach focuses on listening and working with someone to find a goal that meets his/her individual need.
I have a BSW from Illinois State University and an MSW from University of Illinois. I worked in child welfare for 9 years and have been a school social worker for 20 years. I am licensed as a clinical social worker by the State of Illinois. Most recently, I was chosen for the Those Who Excel Award for my work as a school social worker.
