I have been working in the human service field since the year 2000. I have worked in several residential substance abuse treatment centers (Ministry Behavioral Health, Arbor House, Jackie Nitschke Center), a detox unit (Libertas), a Women’s re-entry/alternative to revocation program through Taycheeda Correctional Institute, outpatient facilities for dual services (Innovative Counseling and OPTIONS TX programs) and my most recent/prior job was at Brown County Community Treatment Center/Nicolet Psychiatric Center as an inpatient psychiatric social worker.
I am currently a part time instructor at NWTC teaching course work for the Human Services and Public Safety department. I spent my college (and current) years focused on attachment and the importance of healthy human connection. I was born/raised in my hometown of New London, WI and currently live here in Green Bay, WI with my husband and children. I do not have many hobbies as time with family and nature occupy most of my time.
My goal is always to instill hope in others that things can be different and that they are cared about.
