I started with Catholic Charities my senior year at UWEC in 2021 as a Social Work Intern. I interned for both the Sojourner House and the St. Lawrence Program. During my internship, I became passionate about helping the homeless community in Eau Claire. When I graduated, I was hired on as a Financial Wellness Advocate. I gained a lot of knowledge working for this program. This knowledge helped me when I was asked to take over as the Shelter Coordinator for the Sojourner House around Thanksgiving in 2021.
I am now the Coordinator and I have enjoyed working with the clients and the community. I get to meet new people daily and work with others to improve services. Outside of shelter, I like to relax by playing board games such as Catan and Smash Up, hanging out with friends, and listening to podcasts or music.
