How I Chose this Profession

I chose this profession “by accident.” Wanting to work with children, I prepared to be a minister and/or a teacher. During the summer months while considering several teaching opportunities, I took a position as a child welfare worker in a public social services agency. It was my “calling” and I never looked back.
