Next, I went to the University of Illinois to complete my Masters of Social Work degree. I eventually earned my Licensed Clinical Social Worker certification. Finally, I finished up earning my School Social Worker certificate through Loyola University. Prior to working here, I worked as a mental health and substance abuse treatment provider for children and teens in other districts and agencies. I started working in the Heyworth school district in 2008 and have loved my job ever since!

I reside in Bloomington with my husband, three children, and our lovable Labrador retriever.My husband and I spent many years living in Montana after we were married but moved home to be closer to family I enjoy going to my children’s sporting events, watching movies, traveling, and spending time with my family.
