I received my MSW from Aurora University in 2001 and joined the School of Social Work faculty in 2009. I currently teach in the AODA (alcohol and other drug abuse) program as well as the generalist practice sequence. I have extensive clinical experience working with adults and adolescents in forensic, mental health and substance abuse treatment settings. I am currently engaged in private practice with Advanced Behavioral Health Services in Naperville IL. In addition to teaching, I have served the School of Social Work as a field instructor providing clinical supervision to MSW and addictions treatment students since 2007.
