Social Work


Before teaching at YSU, I was able to work extensively in community mental health. This experience provided a firm foundation for my teaching. My primary social work focus was on providing mental health services to underserved populations. During this time, I worked in crisis services, forensic social work, mental health assessment, and quality improvement. I have always been humbled by the ability to partner with those who may not be receiving the support of their families, friends, or community. I always found my work in the field to be fulfilling; however, I observed a gap in the training that young social workers were receiving when entering the field.
New social workers often came to the agency overwhelmed and underprepared. I began to act as a mentor for new social workers. This soon became my passion and I moved into a quality improvement position which allowed me to create and implement training for new employees in a more formalized position. Ultimately, this transferred to my position at YSU.
