I came to work with The Madeline Centre, Inc. in 2015 with my eyes wide open and ready to learn. I started out in the Therapeutic Day Treatment program during my internship for my Master’s. From there I transitioned into Intensive In-Home as a clinician and now I am assuming the role as the acting Director for IIH services.
I graduated in 2011 with my Bachelor’s in Special Education with a minor in Psychology. I concentrated my studies on children who have both mental health and individualized learning needs. In 2016, I graduated with my Master’s of Education in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling. While working on my Master’s I concentrated on parent collaboration, grief, and LGBT Counseling topics. I have recently entered into my residency for my license and I could not be more excited! I want to be able to reach families and let them know they have an advocate no matter how alone they feel. Although my time at The Madeline Centre has been brief, I can honestly say I would not want to be anywhere else. Every staff member has their own knowledge that they bring to the table and I am so lucky to be able to continue to learn and grow with the best.
In my spare time I thoroughly enjoy my 3 year old’s active imagination and ever growing vocabulary as we save the day from whatever creature he’s created. I also enjoy experiencing new music, good books, loving friends and family, and I like to push my limits in the kitchen with new recipes!
