Family Services


Joined Chaddock in 2014

I started at Chaddock as an intern the summer of 2014 and worked my way up to family service coordinator. I am the point person when it comes to communication between the cottage, the parents, caseworkers, and at times the school district representative. When I have free time at work, I spend that time hanging out with the girls on the floor. I love playing games with them, watching their favorite shows or movies, and going for walks with them. When I am not at work, I usually spend my downtime hanging out with my loved ones or engaging in retail therapy.

Hello! I am the Clinical Supervisor at Chaddock School. My role within the Core Treatment Team is to collaborate and consult with the cottages regarding each of our students. As a Team we are working together to meet our students educational, behavioral, and social emotional needs within the school setting. This ensures continuity of care between our school and cottage environments. I have been with Chaddock since 2008 and I consider myself a lover of coffee and being outdoors with family and friends.
