Vanessa Mahoney, LSW
Vanessa attended Minnesota State University where she earned her Bachelor of Social Work. She has worked in the field since 2013, most recently as a Family Advocate with Solid Ground and as a Resource Counselor with Wellcome Manor Family Services. Her professional goal is to continue to work towards her Master’s degree. She considers her greatest strengths to be her ability to collaborate with other agencies and resources to build networks for her clients, to value the individual’s choice in their care, and to think creatively when resources are scarce to fill the gap. Vanessa is passionate about working in the chemical dependency/mental health field because she finds it inspiring to watch the resiliency of individuals working towards recovery and reconnecting to who they are and who they want to become. In her free time, she enjoys doing a variety of crafts/projects, cooking, and playing with her dog Gryffindor.
