Giving back to the social work profession is something that I believe is vital to the continued growth and success of our profession. I can think of no better way to give back than to serve as President-Elect of the Board of Directors. Throughout my career the best outcomes I have seen for the clients I serve has been when people come together to collaborate on a common goal - which is what I see as the purpose in the board. A group of dedicated professionals coming together to advance the goals of the Social Work profession and improve access for our clients.
