What Lead You to Your Current Job: I have always been a person who cared about others. In school, I excelled in math, but that did not interest me – people did. I volunteered in a number of organizations that taught me about what a social worker does. I also wanted to do more than just earn a paycheck.

Job Duties: I work to place kids in safe, loving homes. As the director, I have a nice balance between client contact, staff supervision and administrative duties.

What I Like About My Job: One of the most rewarding pieces is that I work in a place where everyone’s goals are similar. It is always all about what is best for the kids.
