About Me

 

 

My experience as a Social Worker includes, both, clinical and field-work. I am most proud of my work in developing the REdisCOVERY program here in Port Angeles. 

REdisCOVERY began about 7 years ago, with just me, working to provide street outreach to help people in need. I worked with the Port Angeles Police Department as a co-responder, to accompany officers, on calls with people suffering in crises. Partnering a social worker with law enforcement, we are able to work as a team. Through coordination with other agencies and non-profits, support services are located for those struggling with homelessness, addiction, behavioral and mental health issues. The benefits are far-reaching, easing the burden on law enforcement while helping find a path forward for someone in crisis. The REdisCOVERY program has grown from one person to twenty.   

 

As a former co-responder with the Port Angeles Police Department and the Port Angeles Fire Department, I'm familiar with the internal workings of the city. I know how to build programs that work for solving tough problems. I bring that experience to the City Council.
