More about me
I feel I was a born Social Worker; I feel fulfilled being able to help other’s achieve their goals. I love creatively problem-solving and working collaboratively on teams to work towards a common goal of helping others. It truly has been my honor to be involved, and at times a catalyst, for the improvement in the lives of the people I support.
In my spare time, I enjoy biking, swimming, and camping with my husband and energetic 2.5-year-old son. It brings me great joy to give my son a full range of different experiences in a variety of environments and around different people. My husband and I also enjoy being involved in our church by serving in the toddler classroom. I do my best to live a life full of serving others and ensuring that people are living as full lives as possible, we weren’t meant to do it alone!
