Has been with Bridgehaven since: August 2015
Background: LMSW (Licensed Masters of Social Work) from University of Northern Iowa
Life at home: I live in Hiawatha and am blessed with two absolutely incredible parents who show me every day what unconditional love and compassion looks like. I have a younger brother who constantly makes us laugh and brings contagious joy and passion into almost any situation. And last, but not least, we have a spunky Toy Poodle named Layla and a sweet Schnauzer/Poodle mix named Annie.
To me, Cedar Rapids is: Cherry donuts from Donutland for sure.
Why I'm passionate about what I do: I get one of the greatest privileges and honors of walking alongside women and families, during one of the most life changing journeys of their lives. I am constantly humbled by the opportunity to compassionately listen to joys, fears, concerns, and what is important to each unique individual during a time that brings forth a lot of processing. Every day I get to be apart of reminding people they are loved, worthy, and valuable, and I can't think of anything quite better than that.
