I am a Human Services Major at Old Dominion University with a minor in Communications. In the upcoming Spring, I will be completing my internship at New Life Substance Abuse and Behavioral Consultants Inc. I have a strong passion and drive in devoting myself and help to the field of human services within the different areas that need attention. Throughout my courses of learning and volunteer experiences in various areas of human services, I have noticed that there are many individuals that need help and there are not many human services professionals available to help everyone. In the future I hope to work in the area of social work with victims and children experiencing domestic violence. I would like to advocate for the children to be placed in foster care and adoption agencies, if they are currently in environments that are unhealthy for them. I am interested in counseling and mentoring individuals who are incarcerated and and assist them with assessing their goals and plans when they exit prison.
