Family Resources Coordinator

Tell us a little about your approach to early intervention:

As a Family Resources Coordinator I am the first person on the HopeSparks team to meet with a family that has concerns about their child’s development.  I work with families in their home to gain a better understanding of their child’s strengths and challenges to help determine with the family what services might be appropriate for their child.  I enjoy working with families to help develop treatment goals and provide community resources to complement their early intervention services.  Building rapport and getting to know the children and families we serve is one of my favorite aspects of early intervention.

What qualifications and trainings do you have?

  • Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Washington with course work specializing in human behavior and cultural diversity.
  • Certified Family Resources Coordinator (FRC) in the state of Washington and have participated in several trainings on autism spectrum disorder & sensory issues in young children.

Are there areas of practice that you specialize in?

I am passionate about serving those who serve our country and have experience working with our large military population here in Pierce County.  I have experience working with children with a wide variety of developmental and medical needs including children on the autism spectrum.
