Afton Hencky Is CalSWEC's Database Analyst

New position supports Child Welfare and Integrated Behavioral Health Stipend Programs

Afton Hencky has accepted the new position of Database Analyst supporting both the Title IV-E and MHSA (Mental Health Services Act) Stipend Programs at CalSWEC, effective August 8.

Ms. Hencky will be responsible for managing new and existing student/graduate data for both stipend programs and play a leading role in developing the new CalSWEC Student Information System (CSIS) data management platform and process. 

Ms. Hencky first joined CalSWEC in October 2015 as an administrative assistant. In that capacity, she provided support to the Child Welfare In-Service Training Coordination Project, the Title IV-E Stipend Program, and the Integrated Behavioral Health Program (the Mental Health Program until its name change effective July 1, 2016) and had begun taking a lead role in the new CSIS development effort.

Ms. Hencky earned a B.A in psychology at Smith College in 2011 and completed an intensive web development training program in 2014. Her previous work experience includes over a year doing IT development work at the Danish Institute for Study Abroad in Copenhagen and time as an administrative assistant at Alameda Family Services.

"Because of her experience at CalSWEC, Afton brings to this position in-depth knowledge of CSIS and the management of IV-E and IBH student and graduate data," said Integrated Behavioral Health Director E. Maxwell Davis. "We are excited to have her contribute to these programs in a new capacity and confident that she will coordinate the development of a data management system that supports both programs even more effectively."
