I am a first year school social worker within Milwaukee Public Schools. I grew up in Ashland, WI, a small town located on the bay of Lake Superior. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and Sociology from UW-Stevens Point and then went on to receive my Master’s of Social Work at UW-Milwaukee. I was intern at Hawley last school year and I am so excited to be back!
My role within the education system is to support our students, families, and teachers, to help ensure the educational success of our students. Some of my roles include: teaching special lessons at school, supporting family members, assisting families with finding resources/community services, and advocating for students with special needs.
