Licensed Master of Social Work (LMSW)
Humility, empathy and equity
So far my greatest accomplishment has been obtaining my Masters of Social Work by the time I was 22 years old. I was never the best student growing up, but I knew by high school I wanted to be a social worker. I worked hard and I did it.
What are you the most passionate about in regards to ending homelessness?
There is no one undeserving of having a home. I want to work to alleviate the barriers clients face in accessing housing, and do so in a way that is person-centered, that respects clients autonomy and self determination. I strive to be a part of a system that works for people, most importantly for people who time and time again have been failed by systems.
