Biographical Info:

I enjoy working with children, adults, families, providers and professionals who have met numerous challenges and obstacles. I truly champion the effort of individuals facing life challenges and achieving self-sufficiency.

I began employment with Catholic Charities in September 2015 as Community Based Service Coordinator. My professional experiences include work in an Adolescent Group Home, Residential Treatment Centers, Juvenile and Correctional Institutions, CBRF’s and Child Welfare organizations.

I first came to La Crosse as an undergraduate in the spring of 1987 and soon thereafter discovered the beauty of the region and decided after graduation that La Crosse was a great place to live and work. I recently returned to the area after moving away for 13 years and now realize that it is the beauty of the region and the people that appeal to me the most. I am delighted to be a member of Catholic Charities and look forward to the challenges and responsibilities that my current position entails.
