"Peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart."

My work experiences range from inpatient/outpatient treatment center for teens and adults, battered women's shelter, The Multiple Sclerosis Society, community counseling agency, Employee Assistance Program and supervising students getting their Masters in Social Work. I worked at United Family Services in Charlotte and Concord, NC providing counseling to individuals, couples and families, as well as, supervising masters levels students and staff. I later attended New York University to earn two certificate courses in executive leadership and advanced clinical practice. I also worked for two years at Hunter School of Social Work as a field advisor to master level students. Currently, I am serving as a board member at the UNC School of Social Work.
