Being a social worker is my passion and something I do because I love it!
I completed an undergraduate degree in Social Work at Eastern Connecticut State University, Willimantic Connecticut. While achieving my dream, I worked as a community mobilizer in Rockville, CT. I organized a town wide spring clean up and designed a green space project. I then continued to work as a school social worker at Plainfield Memorial Elementary and Plainfield Central Middle School. I provided social work services in mainstream, Special Education, and Clinical Day Treatment classrooms. Once graduating from ECSU, I then continued to peruse my education at the Masters level. I completed a graduate degree in Social Work at Fordham University’s Graduate School of Social Services in Manhattan, NY. While living and studying in Manhattan, I was an intensive in-home therapist. I provided services to intercity adolescents and their families. Upon completion of my master’s degree I began my career at Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan, CT. I worked with adults and adolescents seeking inpatient metal health hospitalization or inpatient substance abuse treatment. I provided services in the admissions office, working with both the patient and their family members. In the spring of 2011, I was offered a fulltime substitute position as the School Social Worker at both Foran High and West Shore Middle school. Upon completion of the 2010-2011 school year, I was offered a position at Orange Avenue Elementary School for the 2011-2012 school year.
