“I have been very blessed in my life and have an amazing husband and a healthy, smart and talented 14 year old son. I have worked with Northwest Florida Health Network, formally Big Bend Community Based Care since 2006. I have had an array of positions from Placement, Intake, Supervision roles, Early Childhood Court Community Coordinator and I’m currently working as the Kinship Program Manager. I have loved my time with this agency as it has provided numerous opportunities to serve and work with families in the community and this is my heart and passion! I have also had the privilege of growing professionally with some excellent guidance and leadership within the agency. I am grateful to be a Social Worker and blessed to have the opportunity to work at NWF Health where I have the opportunity to work with and serve families daily!”
