Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States
I am a trained Social Worker and Community Counselor with 20 years experience Advocating for families, youth and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. I also have my own personal history with abuse and addiction and believe that by having lived on both sides of the service desk I am in a unique position to facilitate communication between the service delivery sector and the client population. My goal is to create an environment where clients have an active role in policy making and service delivery; where our experiences are given a voice and are empowered to create change within the system. I am also an aspiring writer and avid blogger and hope that my contributions can plant the seeds of hope and empowerment for "Women with a History"
