Life of A Child Welfare Worker

If you would have asked me as a kid what I wanted to be when I grew up--the last thing you would have heard me say was a child welfare professional. But here I am, 20 years in the field, and cannot imagine doing anything else. My work life has changed in those 20 years-from front line work to macro work with agencies across the country in hopes of changing the future of child welfare. Finding balance in a career field that is frequently fraught with trauma has presented challenges-both personally and professionally. When I am not out trying to change the world of child welfare-I can be found in Montana-enjoying the great outdoors with a very supportive husband, son and two dogs.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
