A Huntington Beach native, Carlee always knew she wanted to work in a helping profession. After receiving her Bachelor’s Degree from University of California, Irvine (UCI) in Psychology and Social Behavior, she discovered her passion for working with people in the community setting while receiving her Master’s Degree in Social Work from University of Southern California (USC). Over the last 16 years, Carlee has amassed a plethora of experience in providing direct services in the child welfare arena, with a concentration on foster youth and families, foster children and their birth families, as well as providing independent living support services. Carlee now serves as an Adoptions Social Worker, authoring home studies for our prospective foster/adoptive (resource) families.
