What I do

I am a firm believer that your graduate school experience and learning is the foundation of who you will continue striving to be in the field of social work. With that being said, it's an honor for me to help support future colleagues in their social work journey and this is the reason I have chosen to continue teaching graduate students.

Professional Biography

I have been in the mental health field for the past fourteen years. My journey began working in a psychiatric unit as mental health associate and then developed to becoming a co-leader for groups on the unit for both English and Spanish speaking clients. I then transitioned to research as an interventionist working with women during the prenatal and postpartum period with psychiatric diagnosis to support their transition into and during motherhood. Both these experiences were very rewarding, but I felt that I was not doing enough and was limited to the work I could do if I had a masters degree. This motivated me to obtain my masters in social work at Boston College School of School Work. I am not the director of outpatient services at one the largest mental health agencies in Rhode Island serving high-risk individuals with severe mental health diagnosis. In addition to this role, I have found pleasure in serving a diverse population in a private practice setting along with teaching students at the University of Denver.
