Professional History
I’ve been working at PsyCare since 2009! First as a receptionist while completing my bachelor’s degree, then as the Warren Clinic’s office manager from 2012-2015 while completing my master’s degree. My social worker license has provided me the opportunity to work as a therapist with PsyCare since 2015, and as a social worker at Alliance Community Hospital’s Senior Care Psychiatric Unit from 2016 to 2017. To fulfill the requirements for completing my master’s degree, I interned as a hospice social worker at Southern Care Hospice and as a hospital social worker at Alliance Community Hospital’s Geriatric Psychiatric Unit. In addition, I interned as a therapist at PsyCare from 2014 to 2015, prior to earning my social worker state licensure in 2015.
