Community Navigator
I am a Community Navigator for our Family Resource Center in Marion, Indiana. I have a passion for helping others and I am so excited to be apart of the Children’s Bureau. I am a mom to three wonderful children, and I am currently enrolled in Ivy Tech in the Human Services Program. I am working towards becoming a social worker. I enjoy reading, writing poems and stories, spending time with my family, and playing cards. I love my job and I love people. This opportunity is such a blessing and I know I will learn so many wonderful things about our community and the people who live here.
