"My own journey began back in 2007 as a new resident of Sussex County NJ and as the parent of three children who have struggled with co-occurring mental health and substance use challenges. I am a graduated kinship caregiver having raised my granddaughter from birth until she was successfully reunified with her mother in 2018, and co parent to two step children with complex trauma related mental health challenges. My professional career with New Jerseys Children's System of Care began in 2010. I have seen the positive progression of service options and availability of programming for families including the integration of services for ID/DD youth and youth with substance use challenges. I personally experienced being served as a family and am now honored to serve families on a professional level ensuring they are provided with proper resources for a successful family journey."
