Why Mental Health?

Mental health is important to me because it not only affect us as individuals, but also the greater systems. I think that as we dive deeper into society’s larger problems there is a link between the problems and individuals’ mental health. This means we should be well informed about mental health and work towards more understanding of it.

Where I Started

I started working residential for a group home with children and adolescents. I grew to understand the programs well and eventually left to go to do intensive in-home work for cases contracted by a state agency. I then went to work for the Department of Children and Families and from there went on to work at several child welfare agencies.

Where I Am Now

I am currently a Youth and School Based Clinician for my full time work. I also work per diem (about two shifts a week) as a mobile crisis clinician. I currently have my Masters in Social Work and Master’s in Disaster Resilience Leadership from Tulane University. I also have my preliminary license as a Licensed Certified Social Worker.

Where I'm Going

I hope to continue my path as a Social Worker, eventually get my independent license. I would like to supervise and do Macro work. I am passionate about child welfare and hope to make an impact on that system.
