“As a recent graduate from Daemen College Master’s of Social Work Program, I am thrilled to be joining the Compeer team! Working with youth in our community gives me the opportunity to not only do what I love, but also to create equal opportunity

for the individuals that Compeer serves, to change their lives.

My experiences in community outreach and advocacy, working with youth and families with mental health challenges and life-threatening medical conditions, and group and event coordination will assist me in being successful in the role of Youth Engagement Coordinator at Compeer to continue to achieve the healing power of friendship! I already see the positive impact Compeer’s mission has on youth, adults, families, and veterans.

I am eager to be apart of the change, hope, and friendship that comes with working with an incredible organization, as it strengthens our ability to eliminate the silence surrounding mental health, and ultimately strengthening our community as a whole!”
