I have facilitated sentencing circles, healing circles, Girls Circles, and wellness circles. I previously worked as the Swift County Restorative Justice Coordinator as well as leading circles in two school systems, a residential group home for youth, and a few community circles.
I have experience using circles in the following contexts:
addiction support circles
school circles (addressing bullying and a variety of other issues)
Girls Circle curriculum
I have worked with:
Swift County Restorative Justice
Kandiyohi County Restorative Justice
Heartland Girls Ranch
Independent Community Wellness Circle Facilitator
Areas of Interest and Service
I am interested in working as a consultant, trainer, or facilitator
My educational background includes a bachelors degrees in social work and psychology and a masters degree in child development and family science. I love the circle format and philosophy and have been incorporating it into a variety of different applications. I currently live in central MN where I also am a strong supporter of the healing powers of nature and music.
