“I was drawn to social work as a career in the seventh grade.  I wanted to help people make it through difficult times and find new meaning in their lives. My social work education was based on the “eclectic approach,” perfect for the field of care management and helpful in creating the ideal care plan for each client. My greatest satisfaction comes from my regular interaction with the people we serve; if I can make their day brighter by injecting a little light and humor, I have been successful.”
