Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Wisconsin- Green Bay
I am a recent graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay with a master’s degree in Social Work with a clinical emphasis on helping children and families. Over the past few years, I began to see the gaps in services for families and children who are experiencing a crisis, mental health disorder(s), addiction and domestic violence. These experiences had a profound impact on my path in life.
My journey started in 2017. For my BSW field experience I volunteered at COMSA (Community Services Agency INC) meeting special needs, and challenges affecting refugees and immigrants. I completed my BSW internship at Oneida Nation Family Services-Indian Child Welfare Agency in the CPS department; I then completed my MSW internship at an agency under a clinical social worker which granted an authentic experience and exposure to many types of family dynamics, mental health diagnoses and case management on all levels. My volunteer opportunities and internships have allowed me the ability to use my life experience and school education to continue to my goal of being an advocate as well as a lifelong learner.
