Personal Biography Statement
I am a Gerontologist. I received my MSW from New Mexico Highlands University. I completed an emphasis in mental health and child welfare, so I didn't always plan to work with older adults. I have had a fun and fascinating career in which I have done a full range of child welfare and child placement work, mental health, administration and program development.
As social workers we are taught that we must “start where the client is” in our work with them. This may sound like a simple statement but it can be incredibly difficult to do. It means we must set aside our own expectations of what is 'best' for clients and listen to where they are, how they feel about the issues confronting them, and help them plan to resolve them. This spirit of self-determination is central to social work practice.
