    Previously, I worked with a mental health agency in Raleigh providing intensive in home therapy. I graduated from East Carolina University with my Bachelors and Masters in Social work, also received my school social work licenses this past year.  As a School Social Worker I serve as a vital link between the home, the school, and the community. My mission as a School Social Worker is to alleviate barriers for students so they can be successful in school. I work with students and families for many different reasons. Several of these include: attendance concerns, family dysfunction, substance abuse, child abuse/neglect, life-threatening behaviors, economic deprivation, inadequate health care and lack of understanding of school policies and procedures. As a school social worker, I am also able to link community resources to students and families, and make arrangement with families and/or home visits to ensure each student and family have what is needed to be successful in school.
