Missy joined Jewish Family & Child Service (JFCS) in October of 2010, originally as a Portland State University (PSU) Social Work intern. She is currently a half-time Case Manager for the Holocaust Survivor Services program and is also the Café Europa Event Coordinator, coordinating monthly events that provide social, educational, and recreational activities for Holocaust survivors in the community. In July of 2016, she took on an additional role as Clinical Case Manager at Rose Schnitzer Manor, where she provides an array of supports to residents, their loved ones, and staff. She also has experience working with low-income seniors, older adults in the LGBTQI community, patients in hospice, and Somali Bantu refugees at an afterschool homework group. Missy has a Master of Social Work degree from PSU, as well as a Graduate Certificate in Gerontology from PSU’s Institute on Aging. Becoming a Social Worker has been a lifelong dream for Missy and she is quite grateful for the invaluable experiences she has gained through her various roles at JFCS. In her personal time, Missy enjoys smiling, eating breakfast (at any time of day), playing Sudoku, hiking with her adorable dog, Abbey, and is in love with her Portland Trail Blazers. Missy is also incredibly in love with elephants and is proud to be a natural redhead.
