Most of my experience has been working with young adults experiencing homelessness, addiction, and/or developmental/physical disabilities.

I enjoy working with individuals and families to develop goals to help people succeed in their everyday life and long-term plans. I love encouraging people to reach for their goals and finding creative methods to help accomplish this. I’ve worked with people with a wide range of needs and disabilities.

More about me
I’m so happy to be back to my home town of Madison after moving to Seattle for college. I enjoy spending time outdoors year-round with my dog, Baya. Often after work, I’m trying out a new recipe, getting together with friends, or reading fiction. I love trying new things, but my long term hobby is pottery. I started in high school and haven’t been able to stay away from clay and the pottery wheel for very long since..
