I am beginning my journey as a social worker and I am interested in school social work. I am passionate about helping students and their families find what they need to enhance their wellbeing. In addition to helping then find ways to cope and deal with things that they may struggle with in life.

Truancy Officer/Social Worker

At Mission Achievement and Sucess (MAS) Charter School I get the opportunity to work with multiple age ranges of student to help them enhance their wellbeing. I do this by being a support to student that face many challenges that make affect their work in school and how they can over come these obstacles. Many times students just need an adult that genuinely cares about them and gives them a listening ear when they need someone to just listen to their story.

"To often we underestimate the power of touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest complement, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." -Leo Buscaglia

Masters of Social Work , Social Work (Individual, groups, and families)

I started my educational journay at my local community college where I started studying to become a teacher. I eventually found that being a teacher would not be the king of work that I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I started the criminal justice program and wanted to work with troubled youth. After graduating with a degree in Criminal Justice in May 2010 I decided to go into the social work feild. After that I graduated in May 2012 with my Bachelors in Social Work and continued on to get my masters in social work in December 2016. When doing my internships I found that I really enjoyed working in the school setting so I found a job in a charter school.
