Specialties (e.g., working with autism, the elderly, employment for people with disabilities or youth in transition, mental health, experience with assisted technology)

As a former Economic Support Specialist for Winnebago County, I worked on with people who are aging and those who are disabled. While there, I assisted families, adults, students, people with disabilities, and immigrants with many different things. This included helping them with competing applications, renewals and changes for the following programs: BadgerCare Plus, FoodShare, child care, Caretaker Supplement, Medicare Premium Assistance, and Medicaid-related programs, to name a few. I have also helped people understand complex documents such as tax forms, will, life insurance policies, etc. Finally, I have prepared and presented legal testimony during the Fair Hearing Process, and have made appropriate referrals to The Housing Authority, Energy Assistance, and other local agencies.
