Ms. Amanda - Social Worker

Hello Everyone! I am the new School Social Worker and my first year at LIFE Prep! I graduated with my Masters in Social Work from UW-Milwaukee in May 2019 and received my License in Social Work in August. I was born and raised in Wisconsin and just moved to Minnesota this past summer with my fiancé. I love traveling out west because I love the mountain scene! I have the goal of visiting every National Park; I am up to ten and have many more to go. I have a four-year-old cat that I found in the dumpster and we nicknamed her Dumpy so don’t be afraid to ask for pictures. I am in the building all day on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesday morning. If there is an immediate need, you can email me and I can get back to you faster, otherwise leave a voicemail by calling the front desk. I am so excited to meet all the kiddos and willing to help out in anyway!
