As a high school teacher of at-risk youth, she made sure education was an option. Then, as a counselor to first generation college students, she provided students with college know-how. Now with Best Foot Forward for five years, Mandy uses her skills to make the transition from high school to college a smooth one and help our students successfully navigate college life. Mandy is certified as a Youth Mental Health First Aid Provider and is trained in both Trauma Informed Care and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
