Why social work? I have always loved volunteering with populations in need. I began volunteering at a summer camp for ventilator dependent children when I was 15 and became interested in the healthcare setting. Social work with a health focus seemed like a great way to turn my interests into a career!

Favorite thing about Cleveland? The lake, the sports spirit, and my family! Growing up, we would visit different places around Cleveland, and it’s really neat to explore the area now and make the connections to how much it has changed and grown since I was a kid.

Fun Fact: I love rollerblading! The furthest I’ve ever bladed in one day is 21 miles.
