I am new to the SARC family as an On Call Crisis Response Advocate and look forward to being a support and to continue to serve my community. I am a Portland native that graduated from University of Oregon with a degree in Sociology in 2012. Since graduation I have spent the bulk of my career serving at risk, and high need communities within the human services and criminal justice systems. I have served in the following capacities; In reunification with the Department of Human Services, as a Juvenile Court Counseling Assistant and Juvenile Court Counselor with Multnomah County juvenile probation services, a Juvenile Intake Specialist with Clackamas County, a Victim’s Advocate and Juvenile Detention Counselor with the State of Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice.
My goal is and will continue to be assisting people with finding and magnifying their voices. To be seen, heard, and accepted are the greatest of human gifts.
On my free time I love to find new places to eat, spending time near water and sand, and adding stamps to my passport.
