Why social work? I always had a passion since I was younger helping others. It wasn’t until my mother became a therapeutic foster parent at the age of 9 that I knew I wanted to help children and their families. Being a social worker has so many challenges and I have always been a risk taker.

Favorite thing about Cleveland? The lights downtown at night.
