Background in social work and advocacy. Prior to working at OBH I was employed at Brown County Health and Human Services working in child welfare for about three and a half years. Prior to that I have worked at different non-profits, primarily working with survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. My work has included case management, facilitating support groups, legal advocacy, crisis response, and volunteer management. I have goals of attaining my master’s degree to be a licensed professional counselor to better serve my community. I am originally from a very small town in south central Wisconsin and after finishing college at UWGB, I have made Green Bay my home. I live with my fiancé and our pack of fur babies that include 3 rescue dogs and 2 rescue bunnies. In my spare time I enjoy doing yoga, long walks with my dogs, cooking/baking, and doing creative projects such as sewing, knitting and other DIY projects.
