When President Lyndon Johnson began the “War on Poverty” in 1964 his goal was to provide the opportunity for every American to enjoy the benefits of the nation’s “Great Society.” As part of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, a network of local organizations, known as Community Action Agencies, have pioneered programs which have lifted millions out of the shadow of poverty by “giving a hand, not a handout.” Each of these organizations has policy-making boards, at least one-third of which must be democratically elected representatives of the low-income community.Your Content Goes Here

Outagamie County – Low Income Seat

Hello, I’m Courtney Donati from Kimberly, WI. I am currently a Learning and Development Director with a K-12 education program that improves students’ mental health and wellness in schools and communities.

This is my second school year out of the world of public education. Prior to this position I was working as a school counselor which put me in a position where I worked with many students who came from low income families. I worked with the ‘backpack program’ where low income students would receive food on Fridays to carry them through the weekend, I helped manage and source items for our clothing closets (especially cold weather gear), helped students get fee waivers for their college applications, ACT testing and other school needs.

I grew up with my dad who did not achieve his goal of home ownership until he was in his early 60’s. He worked a full time job but was solely responsible for my care which often created financial stress. My mother, who I saw very rarely, moved frequently due to financial issues and was often unable to provide a stable and consistent home environment. I stopped seeing her every other weekend when I was about 8 years old.

My name is Sara Sickels and I am a highly skilled and experienced Medical Biller. With 30 years in the Healthcare industry, I have honed my skills in Medical Claims and Billing. Throughout my career, I have demonstrated my ability to get medical claims paid in a timely manner along with helping patients understand why they have received a billing statement. Being a single mother myself, I understand the struggles many families face financially. This gives me the drive to ensure every patient is treated with kindness, understanding and empathy.

In addition to my professional work, I am committed to giving back to the community. I volunteer regularly at Marine Corps League Detachment and Auxiliary in Oshkosh and have also served on several boards including AAPC, Wisconsin’s Wheel of Hope and my local 4-H club. I believe strongly in the importance of community service and helping those in need.

I earned my associates degree in Healthcare Professional Services from NWTC in 2015 and went on to earn my BA degree in Business Administration with a focus on Healthcare from Lakeland University in 2018.
