Kristen P. Pulice, MSW, LCSW

Chief Operating Officer


Kristen Pulice is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker originally from Long Island, New York. In 1998 she received a Bachelor of Science in Applied Social Science from Binghamton University and in 2000 she received a Master in Social Work from Adelphi University. Before offering services on a macro level, Ms. Pulice provided 13 years of clinical therapy; including individual and family therapy, case management, crisis intervention and advocacy within a mental health, therapeutic foster care, and school-based setting. Ms. Pulice’s last three professional years in New York were spent as a senior social worker within the therapeutic foster care program where she had worked for seven years. A calculated risk taker, Ms. Pulice moved to Indiana in 2008; a decision that revitalized a lifelong passion. Determined to set right social injustices, Ms. Pulice modified her career path and began utilizing her skills on a macro level as a social change agent in the anti-sexual violence field. As Director of Primary Prevention and Education at the Indiana Coalition Against Sexual Assault (INCASA), Ms. Pulice became a strong advocate against sexual violence, speaking with and educating legislators and others about the state of sexual assault in Indiana. Her advocacy resulted in being presented with the Community Citizenship Award from Legacy House during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week 2015 for ongoing advocacy and work to ensure that sexual assault continues to receive attention in our community. Ms. Pulice was recently appointed by the Governor of the State of Indiana to serve a three year term on the Domestic Violence Prevention and Treatment Council (DVPTC) as the sexual assault representative. Her term will conclude in 2018.
