I am the social worker assigned to work with Eisenhower High School's Cardinal Community program. While the Cardinal Community is focused on their freshman year of school, I will work with any student in the program during all four years of high school.
I have worked for CHSD 218 since 2007, but began working in education in 1998. I've worked as a school social worker, counselor or administrator since 2002. I have worked in both private and public schools as well as therapeutic day and residential schools.
As a school social worker, I work with students and families to provide a variety of supports based on individual circumstances. In collaboration with teachers, administration, coaches and community agencies I hope to coordinate services to help with issues including but not limited to social-emotional challenges including depression and anxiety, academic and behavioral struggles at school, substance use or abuse, conflict resolution skill development and safety concerns.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns and if there is anything that I can be of support to you or your family.
