Education and Industry Experience:
I graduated from Monmouth University with a Master of Social Work degree in 2010. Since then, I have worked with people with mental health and substance use disorders in a variety of settings, including community outreach programs for adults with serious mental illness, in-home treatment for children, transitional housing for survivors of domestic violence, disaster response crisis counseling, and office-based therapy.
What does your day to day look like within your role:
The social workers’ day can include anything from office-based or telehealth therapy sessions, to intervening for someone in crisis, to providing support to new moms, to providing linkage and advocacy for people with basic needs.
