Thanks for taking the time out to learn a little about me. I have a huge passion for advocating and helping other identify their potential.
I am a Black woman navigating life as a millennial, who is attempting to pursue her passions in life. One of those passions include criminal justice reform. Keep reading, there’s a bit more information about me listed below:
I am a licensed social worker and certified clinical trauma profession that facilitates therapy with men and women involved in the federal criminal justice system (Federal pretrial, incarceration/halfway, probation) in a community-based agency located in Cleveland, OH . I hold a master’s degree in Social Work from The University of Akron and Bachelors of Arts degree (Criminal Justice) from Baldwin Wallace University. I have experience in the addiction field in correctional settings, residential, ambulatory detox, and outpatient settings. Also, I have worked previously in mental health settings, including inpatient settings with youth and outpatient settings with adults with severe and persistent mental illnesses.
I have a passion for advocating and assisting persons returning home from prison/jail. I seek to be more active in influencing other professionals and policy makers that influence the treatment and people that I provide services to everyday. I wanted to create a platform that encourages others to join advocacy efforts in any way they feel comfortable and choose!
