Prior to coming to Midstate Independent Living Choices (MILC), I worked as a Director of Youth for the afterschool and summer programs in Iola. Prior to that, I worked at the Community Action Program (CAP) as a teacher’s aide. In June of 2020, I completed my Bachelor’s Degree at UW-SP in Family and Consumer Sciences with a Child, Youth and Family Studies with an emphasis on strengthening families in our community. I completed an internship through CAP and worked with families in their homes as an Early Head Start Home Visitor. I was also previously employed at MILC as an Independent Living Consultant.
I have three (3) children and have lived in Iola for more than 17 years. I enjoy spending time with my family, jigsaw puzzles and crafting.
I look forward to meeting you and assisting in meeting your self-directed goals.
