For as long as I can remember, I’ve been involved in youth and family work. I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology and master’s degree in social work. I am an LICSW – licensed independent clinical social worker. For 25+ years, I’ve had the opportunity to work, intern, and volunteer in a variety of settings such as school, county child welfare, juvenile correctional facilities, faith-based settings, and not for profit social service agencies.
For the last 15 years of my professional life, that experience focused on the area of foster care and adoption. During those 15 years, I worked as a social worker and supervisor as people journeyed through the foster care and adoption process from home study, to matching, to finalization. Those experiences brought me to where I am today, a paralegal with Fiddler Osband.
I am married and a mother of boy-girl twins. In my free time, I enjoy watching my kids do what they love – gymnastics, hockey and soccer. I enjoy walks and baking and especially eating those baked goods!
