It is a privilege to teach, to walk briefly with students on their journey through Clarke. I believe it must begin with the student’s reality and that my responsibility is to listen carefully to each student, teach and guide, and in all things to be consistent in my expectations, and my presence emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually.
At Clarke people care for one another. When something happens everyone comes together. When someone is hurt or ill people want to be there to support and help out in any way they can.
I spent over 20 years as a Medical Social Worker and Mental Health Therapist in Chicago, IL. My experience includes clinical work with individuals and families in inpatient and outpatient medical settings, including Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center, Michael Rees Hospital, and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. In addition to my work as a medical social worker, I also maintained a private practice, working with women who were experiencing transitions in their lives.
