Why social work? Upon discovering that social workers provide most professional mental health services in an Abnormal Psychology class, I knew what I wanted to be! After earning a psychology degree, I chose an advanced degree in social work so that I could use my skills to help individuals, families and communities improve their circumstances. It is my lifelong commitment to help increase accessibility of various services for the most vulnerable among us. Social Work Matters!
