Thank you for visiting my website!
I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Michigan State University with a concentration in abnormal brain behavior. I first began working with people with disabilities over 20 years ago and since that time I have worked in various aspects of health care including personal injury case management, mental health, brain injury rehabilitation, outpatient therapy, home health, and social services. I am a Board Certified Case Manager (CCM) and a Certified Brain Injury Specialist and I have had extensive training in assisting clients in accessing social services such as Social Security, Disability, Medicare and Supplemental Income programs.
I have worked in rehabilitation case management for persons involved in car accidents for over 10 years. Throughout my career I have been involved in a number of efforts with the Brain Injury Association of Michigan including the Brain Injury Provider Council. I have a wealth of knowledge and resources related to brain injury. I am well versed in Michigan Auto No-Fault and always advocate for my clients!
I am a founding Board member of the Capitol Area Case Management Council (CACMC), a professional organization for case managers (nurse and social worker) in the Greater Lansing Area. The group meets quarterly for an educational dinner program and members receive continuing education. I was previously the Membership Chair and Director of Communications for this organization. In 2019 I was voted President of the Board.
I am also actively involved in The Lansing Sister Cities Commission which is a non-profit organization with the goal of connecting Lansing to the rest of the world through a global citizen diplomacy network.
