Before Maggie Sweeney became a Forensic Interviewer at Mission Kids, she was the supervisor of an intake unit for the Montgomery County Office of Children & Youth (OCY). While there, one of her roles was to serve as a liaison between OCY and Mission Kids Child Advocacy Center (CAC). In 2010, Mission Kids CAC officially welcomed Maggie to the team as a child forensic interviewer. Today, she oversees the forensic interviews conducted at Mission KIds as the Manager of Forensic Services. As part of the team, Maggie also develops, implements and monitors the necessary activities to maintain compliance with the National Children’s Alliance membership standards. These standards include the family advocate program and both the forensic interviewing and multidisciplinary investigative team processes.
In addition to her master’s degree in social work, Maggie has also received extensive training from the National Children’s Advocacy Center in advanced child forensic interviewing and extended forensic interviewing as well as forensic interviews at trial. Even while away from the office, she continues to support her community by being a member of the Montgomery County Sexual Assault Task Force (SATF).
