In addition to the 3 jobs posted in this resume, prior to obtaining my MSW, I worked for 4 years as a social worker in a state mental hospital. After my MSW, in 1974, I returned for 1 year and provided social work supervision and worked with patients being placed in the community. From 1974 until 1988 I held various positions both paid and volunteer in the community, ie: Administrator of a halfway house for mentally ill women, part time instructor at Valparaiso University in the Social Work department, private practice, serving on boards of directors for non profit organizations, leadership in Girl Scouts, volunteering at church and school activities. In 2002, I worked for the Valparaiso School system - first as a substitute teacher, then in special education classes and finally as the social worker for the alternative middle and high school program.
