    Social Work

    I would not have gotten the experience I had here at Ursuline College anywhere else. Community college prepared me to be a student; Ursuline prepared me to be a professional.

    Why I Chose Ursuline

    My mother and my friend Monique Primm (a 2015 Ursuline grad) encouraged me to consider Ursuline. I prayed about it, I thought about it and I came for a visit. I don’t think I could have made a better choice. I would not have gotten the experience I had here at Ursuline College anywhere else. Community college prepared me to be a student; Ursuline prepared me to be a professional.


    Putting My Ursuline Degree to Work

    Ursuline pushed me to a professional level I didn’t know I could achieve. As a student, I worked as a part-time mental health worker in the Child & Adolescent Psychiatric Unit at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. I received the BSW (bachelor’s in Social Work) Student of the Year Award in 2017. Now, I work at Recovery Resources helping adult clients who have severe mental health diagnoses and criminal histories.


    I’m Making My World More…

    [Caring.] I also volunteer in the Ronald McDonald Family Room for families of children hospitalized at Rainbow, where I received Rainbow’s Volunteer for All Seasons award in 2017.
