Inspiration

As stated by Maya Angelou, “my mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive.” I have always been acutely aware that this pursuit is made harder for some of us than others, and I remain inspired by the ability for many of us to persevere. There is limitless potential within social work to transform lives, communities, and policies should the profession commit to self-examination and evolution. I’m committed to supporting this evolution through cultivating innovative, ethically sound, informed future social workers.
