About Sandra Wagner, M.S.W.

Professor Wagner began her social work career in child welfare through a private foster care agency as well as for the state of Indiana. She has had the opportunity to work with children and families in crisis in a variety of settings. Professor Wagner assessed the safety of children in foster and biological homes and provided ongoing case management. Since that time, she became a certified forensic interviewer through the National Children’s Advocacy Center and has worked with victims of abuse at a local Child Advocacy Center and in the Emergency Department at Dayton Children’s Hospital. Along with assessing for abuse and neglect in the emergency department, she completed mental health assessments for kids and young adults. From her passion with children and families, she became aware of a need for additional services for women in need of substance use treatment. In 2016, she co-founded Her Story, Inc. a nonprofit in Xenia that provides housing to women in need of detox and inpatient substance use treatment.
