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.
