Svea is the Program Manager for DentistLink. She is passionate about removing barriers for underserved people to increase their access to needed resources. With DentistLink, that means connecting Medicaid (Apple Health) and uninsured patients to the dental care they need and may otherwise be unable to access. Previously, she has managed programs that worked to connect women and people of color to living wage careers as well as creating better systems to connect families experiencing homelessness to housing and resources.
She graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with her Masters in Social Work with a focus on social and economic development. Outside of work, she loves to hike and camp with her family and friends and enjoys cooking new recipes from all over the world.
