I began my career with Catholic Charities in February 2000 as a Financial Counselor in the Wausau office. Prior to joining Catholic Charities I worked in the banking industry in many positions with the last position as Branch Manager with US Bank. In banking I received education through the American Institute of Banking and also taught classes.
Since joining Catholic Charities there has been an increase in the number of programs offered in the Wausau Office. I became a HUD certified Housing Counselor in 2000 which allows me to work with mortgage delinquency, foreclosure prevention and homebuyer education. In 2011, I became a HCV Quality Standards Specialist which allows me to conduct home inspections for safe and sanitary conditions. I also have certification with the NFCC (National Foundation for Credit Counseling).
