Meet the Interns

Intern  Robert Brown

Robert Brown

Hello! My name is Rob Brown and I’m in the final year of my BSW at UW-Milwaukee. I’m originally from Clarksville, TN and also lived in Memphis for several years. Having retired from the Navy, I’ve had the opportunity to travel and live in many different places around the world, but Madison is currently home. In my spare time, I love to travel, particularly to various wine regions, go hiking, and trying out different restaurants. I’m very excited to learn and gain experience in social work at the macro level as an Intern with NASW-WI this year.

I am so excited to learn more about macro- level social work and to be apart of changing systemic issues that affect vulnerable populations in Wisconsin!"

 Hi, my name is Liv Lacayo. I graduated in the spring of 2021 from UW-Oshkosh with my BSW and am currently enrolled in the part-time MSW program at UW-Madison. I am passionate about making an impact in the community and giving back when I can. Policy work is something that became an interest to me. My hobbies include dog training, baking and decorating, and attempting to watch every series or movie on Netflix. I look forward to the experiences I will have at NASW-WI.

Intern Abbe Bivian 


 Hi! My name is Abbe Bivian and I am in my final year of my BSW with a minor in Psychology. I was born in Santa Ana, California, but have lived in Wisconsin for most of my life. I am a first-generation student and I’ve always had a passion for advocacy, social justice, and mental health. In my free time I enjoy reading, trying out new food, being outside, and visiting Chicago every chance I get. I am very excited and grateful for all the experience, opportunity, and knowledge that NASW-WI will give me this year!
