BrendaHello! My name is Brenda Boehler. I am the new Youth Support Specialist at Pathfinders Services of ND. I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Work from Minot State University. I have lived in Minot for 30 years. I have worked in the community and through my employment experience I have worked with families in the field of mental health and have also work in public housing, assisting families with resources to live independently. Though being a military dependent I have experience working with parents as a trained parent aide, through this role I assisted parents with the transition into military life. I have had the pleasure of both attending and presenting at local and national conferences throughout the years, on a variety of topics. I am proud to say that I am also a graduate of Partners in Policy Making, through this training I have developed a better understanding of how to support persons with disabilities become self-advocates. I enjoy working with people!
