When did you start at KCHC?

I started KCHC in May of 2019. I began as a case manager but am now moving to an APSW role.

What areas do you specialize in?

Improvement of mental health through evidence-based treatment of stress, anxiety, and depression.

 

Brief description of your professional expertise/experience/reason for choosing your field.

I chose to work at KCHC because I appreciated the integrated health system they had in place. The idea that a patient could come to KCHC as a “one stop shop” for all their medical, dental, and behavioral health needs was something new and different I have not experienced before. I also really appreciated KCHC’s mission to combat health disparities for the entire Kenosha Community.

The thing I love most about working at KCHC is working with the patients. I think I am motivated most by my coworkers and their dedication to making KCHC the best clinic it can be.

Education background:

  • 2018 Bachelors of Social Work-Carthage College
  • 2019 Masters of Social Work-Dominican University

I primarily work at the 22nd Ave Clinic, but am often moving around to other clinics as needed.

When I am not working, I love to cook and bake, spend time with my family, and play with my dog, Nugget.
