Working directly with children, in any capacity, has always been a passion of Charlie's. Learning about the CAC model added a fire to that passion. After working for the Michigan Chapter CAC for two years, Charlie was ready for a position that would allow her to work more directly with children. She graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelors in Psychology with a minor in Public Administration. When not working, she spends her time outdoors going on walks, kayaking or gardening.
