Hello and thanks for visiting my page! I am excited to be back at Vento for the 2015-2016 school year! This is my third year here, however, prior to coming to Vento, I spent 4 years serving secondary buildings in St. Paul Public Schools. This year I will be focusing my work on the 3rd and 5th grade students as well as collaborating with the other social workers on our goal of making Vento a Trauma Informed School. I earned my Bachelors degree from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities in Theatre and German
I attended Augsburg College in Minneapolis to earn my Masters degree in Social Work with a concentration on Family Practice. Professionally, my interests include child and adolescent development and mental health, especially in the areas of trauma, attachment, and anxiety. When I'm not at Vento, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, traveling, hiking in the many regional and state parks, and writing spoken word poetry. Please feel free to contact me anytime!
