Wanakee Brown

I am from Elkhart, Indiana and I have a B.A. in Psychology from Indiana University. I have 10 years of experience in healthcare management and administration.  I am well versed in Social and Community psychology research techniques. I co-authored the “2009 HIV/AIDS Prevention Gap Analysis” for the Indiana Health Department.  My research findings in the field of Psychology of Religion are published in text book The Psychology of Prayer (Spilka, Ladd 2013).  I enjoy taking walks in nature, teaching dance, and reading books about religion and indigenous cultures.  Joining Family & Children First as a Wraparound Facilitator has been very rewarding.  It has allowed me the opportunity to be a part of creating community change. I love that this program is unconditional, which extends a sense of hope and support for the families we work with. I am truly blessed to be a part of Wraparound and I look forward to learning more about how Clermont County serves the community.
