I was raised in the Detroit area of Michigan, but moved to Hillman in 2004, where I met my now husband and moved to Alpena in 2018. I have 2 teenage children; my daughter is 18 & my son is 15. Spending time with my family and close friends is very important to me! In my spare time I enjoy creating drink tumblers & other functional epoxy art, while running my very small business out of my home selling my pieces and doing commissions. I received my Bachelors in Social Work in December of 2013, graduating with honors from Madonna University. However, I have worked in the Human Services field since 2008 in one capacity or another. I am passionate about working with our most vulnerable populations & advocating for them to live life to their fullest potential. I am very excited to be able to work with the team here at CFSNEMI, who are equally as passionate! I hope to make a positive difference in the lives of our children & families!
