I received my Bachelors in Social Work from Western Michigan University. After graduation I worked in Child Welfare for over three years. I continued in case management and worked as a Bankruptcy/Financial Counselor for a couple years. I have always enjoyed the legal system and decided to get my Masters in Criminal Justice from the University of Toledo. Upon graduation I worked for a year as Parole officer working with the women population. I then worked for Head Start workign with children and their families. I am now working as a Legal Secretary and transitioning into a new job that will utilize my social work and criminal justice background. I am also wrapping up my application to law school in which I hope I can do a lot of good with my law degree. I love continuing to learn and connecting with new people. Recovery/Substance Abuse, Law, Child Welfare, Animals, Prison Reform, Domestic Violence, HIV/AIDS, Women's needs/issues, and so many more things!
