I attended Dakota Wesleyan University and graduated in May of 1990 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree and a double major in psychology and sociology. After completing my degree, I worked for the State of South Dakota as a Child Protection Services social worker for many years. In March of 2006 I started a career as a Licensed Addiction Counselor at Stepping Stones. I’m certified in teaching anger management and Common Sense Parenting groups as well as the Duluth Domestic Abuse program. I work with individuals who are involved in the halfway house program and assist them with transitioning into the community.
