Kittel Cottage is a unique cottage on our campus for our young men. At Kittel, they will begin to learn and acquire the skills to live independently. The staff helps them learn how to cook on their own, how to maintain their residence, as well as job skills.

As a mental health professional, I have been tremendously impressed in my time here at Chaddock. The staff collaborate care throughout the campus to ensure the best treatment for all the children overseen. Serving as a therapist for the older boys in Kittel Cottage has been a wonderful experience for me. When not engaging with the Chaddock family here, my husband and I have five boys at home to care for. We enjoy camping, canoeing, fishing, and many other activities where we can appreciate the beautiful outdoors.

Joined Chaddock in 1999

I’m a mental health professional, beginning my employment at Chaddock in 1999.  For 17 years, I worked in a direct care role in different cottages and with different programs. In my present role, I seek to work effectively with the young men we serve and their families/support systems.  I very much want to facilitate interactions and opportunities for family growth and positive relationships as we all move forward.  While my free time is largely devoted to my family of course, I have interest in current events and history.
