Social Worker

Nadine Arvesen Byrnes is a lifelong resident of the Southside of Chicago. She grew up playing all types of sports, but continued her softball career throughout her time at Mother Mcauley. She went on to receive her BSW (2012) and MSW (2013) from Western Michigan University. Nadine’s first job out of college was at Timberline Knolls residential facility for women and young girls. She received trauma informed training, along with dialectical behavioral training from this facility. Nadine went on to work as a case manager providing early intervention services to children birth-3 and their families. Her most recent job was at an alternative high school where she provided social work services to students with behavioral and emotional disabilities. Nadine is excited to be back at Mother Mcauley representing the Mighty Macs and providing support and lifelong skills to young women so that they can find their potential and continue the McAuley legacy.
