“Suffering is a universal part of the human experience and being a Social Worker gives me the unique opportunity to support people during their most challenging times. With a little kindness and compassion, people can start to recognize and actualize the immense resiliency within ourselves. I consider myself lucky to be in the business of empowerment!”
