Additional Information
Education/Experience
As a full time MSW student, I am currently in my second year enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy and Practice. The program emphasizes time spent in the field, requiring two full years (24/week) at agencies that participating in Penn's field placement program.

Currently, I am placed at a community behavior health center, working with adults with mental illness in an outpatient setting. I work with individuals, as well as co-facilitate two groups (Mindfulness & Meditation and Art Therapy).

I approach my clinical work through a psychodynamic lens, practicing relational techniques to develop a strong and meaningful therapeutic relationship that allows the consumer to correct the emotional experience.

My hope is to have a career in helping all individuals struggling with eating and feeding disorders; and have a particular interest in working with men and marginalized groups with ED, specifically the LGBTQ+ and people of color communities.
Social/Volunteer Organizations
Prior to my move to Philadelphia, I was an active volunteer at Martha's Table in Washington, D.C., serving vulnerable communities in the DMV area.

Currently, I struggle to find time to be consistent in my volunteer efforts. I participate annually in National Eating Disorder Association walks and other charitable events, as well as provide donations and participation in the Walk to End Alzheimer's. My hope is to be more involved once my formal academic training is complete.
More Information
Transitioning from a profession in politics/campaigning to clinical social work has been challenging, and tremendously rewarding. While the scope of the work differs, the foundation of both professions is one of helping others through direct, meaningful work.

My work with people with varying ecological systems -- as well as my own personal experience with an eating disorder -- has given me the basic experience to dive head first into this educational process, and and a drive to develop strong ethical values and clinical skills to practice with individuals and groups struggling with ED.
