I just joined this group and am very excited to join this group of scholar-practitioners and educators!
I recently joined Herzing University and I am the Director of Field Education for the Master of Social Work Program. The new online graduate program is currently in CSWE Pre-Candidacy, and our first MSW cohort begins in September!
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2003, I have more than 21 years' experience in the social work field. For the last 9 years, I have been Senior Director of Clinical Operations for a large national behavioral health organization--supervised and provided clinical and training support for more than 60 LCSWs in multiple states and provided behavioral health services to aging adults in post-acute and long-term care communities.
In 2022, I completed my Doctorate in Education in Organizational Change and Leadership from USC. I live in Missouri and love the change of seasons in the Midwest. I walk my dog often and love participating in and attending sports events.
I look forward to learning more about you all, particularly Field Education Directors on this list serve.
Warm regards, and I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day holiday weekend!
