My Story

My passion for working with children began when I was in high school working as a teacher in the attached preschool. The kids’ curiosity, rapid growth, and general love for life drew me to specialize in treatment of children and families. As both a social worker and dance artist, I love finding new ways to intertwine my two passions, which makes my social work practices fun and effective for children and families! I believe in the healing, transformative powers of art and movement, and have a strong desire to advocate for the needs of the children and families with whom I work.

My Blue Bird Day

As a new social worker at Blue Bird Day, I appreciate the collaborative nature of the school. With all of the powerful, creative minds housed under one roof, families can receive the best possible care for their children.

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. Further explore the ways in which art can be used in therapy.
  2. Effectively guide children and families through individualized treatment plans.
  3. Earn my LSW as well as my LCSW.
