I am passionate about social work and the profession. I have been in the profession for over 40 years. I have served children and families, mental health clients, adoption social worker, school social worker, and direct practice. I have developed and implemented human services programs. I have served on licensing entities to ensure that guidleines are met as required in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I believesoial workers are the "TRUE" social change agents and can empower people. By empowering others we will systematically impact social change.
