Biographical Info:

While enrolled at University of Wisconsin – La Crosse, I joined Catholic Charities as a Support Specialist as part of my undergraduate internship. It did not take long for me to realize this is the field for me. I enjoy giving every child the opportunity to grow and to learn. I finished my undergraduate degree in Psychology with At Risk Child and Youth Care and Sociology minors at UWL. I immediately returned to Catholic Charities full time. Over the last several years I have had several jobs working with children, from being a nanny to a basketball coach and just as those have been, being a part of the Disability Services team has been some of the most rewarding times for me.

I am a huge Minnesota sports fan and in my spare time I love to support my teams or participate in sports myself. One of my favorite things about working at Catholic Charities is the environment. Working with such loving and caring people has helped me to better myself and has taught me how to be the best educator I can be.
