Hello! I am Kelly, the new Clinical Director. I was born and raised in Independence, Kentucky and studied Sociology and African-American Studies at the University of Kentucky, and then Social Work at the University of Michigan.
I have worked in the field of social work for 14 years. I’ve worked in the United States with many different populations – child survivors of abuse, women leaving domestic violence situations, homeless women and children, clients living with HIV, and young adults with disabilities. I also worked with the Peace Corps and Doctors Without Borders, living and working overseas for 7 years in the countries of Zambia, Cambodia, Uganda, Malawi, Colombia, Kenya, Abkhazia, and Myanmar.
I am very happy to be back in the Cincinnati area, and honored to be a part of your GLAD House Team! I will do my best to work with the great team of providers and clinicians here to provide the best care for your child and family.
