Presenters: 

Maggie Bianchi MA, QMHP

I received my undergrad from Western Illinois University with my major in psychology and my minor in law enforcement and justice administration. My first career out of college was as a psychiatric technician with Maryville Academy in their residential inpatient facility for adolescent girls, which is what cemented my interest in working with the adolescent population. I returned to school and obtained my MA in Forensic Psychology from Argosy University Chicago. I began working at Rosecrance as a member of the SASS team, then moved on to manage our CST program, and I am currently the Community Based Supervisor and oversee both CST and MCR programs.
