I have 10 years experience delivering mental health clinical services to a variety of populations in a variety of settings. My specializations have been in working with youth and families in community mental health, psychiatric hospitals, residential, correctional, and school settings. I have also specialized in the treatment of sexual offenders and survivors of sexual abuse.
For the past 14 years, I have managed behavioral health (community based and inpatient) and developmental disabilities Medicaid programs for the State of Alaska, specializing in compliance and quality assurance.
My goal is to focus on my own consulting business, assisting behavioral health providers in compliance with federal and state Medicaid regulations.
I am a licensed clinical social worker in 3 states (IL, WI, AK), certified in Pupil Personnel Services (IL), certified in National Inspection/Investigation, and Health Care Compliance. I hold 2 Masters Degrees in Social Work and Public Administration.
