Why social work? “I’m deeply interested in why people do the things they do, and I deeply love children and want to help them live up to their full potential. My field placement this year is with Ohio Guidestone in early childhood mental health. I’ll be providing home-based services.”

Favorite thing about Cleveland? “Mitchell’s Ice Cream! My favorite flavor is chocolate peanut butter cup. I always have to have Mitchell’s when I’m home.”

Fun Fact: “I love the theater community, and I grew up in it here in Cleveland. I’m an actor and a singer. Most recently, I was in a play called “Akarui” with Cleveland Public Theater. I was in the ensemble, which was fun because the ensemble was like a Greek chorus – we were story-tellers. And I had to dance, which was out of my comfort zone.”
