What I do

Allie Pappas is an advanced standing MSW student in the University of Denver's Graduate School of Social Work. She is in the Sustainable Development and Global Practice (SDGP) concentration while also pursuing the Animal-Assisted Social Work (AASW) certificate. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Social Work (BSW) from Meredith College in Raleigh, NC. 

After obtaining her BSW, Allie worked in traditional social work settings including public relations and adoptions. She then stepped outside of the field working as a veterinary technician, an office administrator for a large-animal veterinary service and ran her own equine business. Allie is ecstatic to combine her knowledge and passions for social work, animals and the environment. She is currently serving as an intern with the Institute for Human-Animal Connection and hopes to pursue a career promoting the One Health initiative.
