I have been with Catholic Charities since 2003 when I was hired as an Adoption and Pregnancy Support Social Worker in Eau Claire. In 2005, I became the Adoption Director. I have my Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counseling with an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Sociology. I hold a Wisconsin Advanced Practice Social Worker License as well.
Prior to coming to Catholic Charities I worked with homeless families for over 9 years. Outside my professional life, I coach volleyball and volunteer with several different organizations. I have two daughters, Madeleine and Elizabeth who keep me very busy. I have had the privilege of working with extremely talented professionals in the adoption world with the Adoption Program, but also the Post Adoption Program. I also have enjoyed helping families find a forever child. It has been a tremendous privilege in getting to know these families and for them to allow me to assist them in their adoption journey. If you are interested in adoption, please feel free to contact either myself or one of the local social workers to assist you in the process.
