My interest in social work practice and education is founded in learning, collaboration, support and opportunities for growth. It is my goal that students leave placement/class with increased confidence in their level of skill, knowledge, and potential to advance change while upholding the values of social justice and human dignity. In other words, understand the incredible profession that is social work!
