"As a clinical social worker, my particular passion is to prepare future social workers who can assist individuals and families overcome the challenges they encounter both personally and in their environment. As social work professionals, they will play a critical role in the strengthening of families and in the development of healthy communities that focus on meeting the needs of all residents regardless of socio-economic class.
"I also have had the privilege to work internationally with colleagues in South America and hope to encourage students to develop a global perspective which envisions the possibilities for positive change and the need to confront social injustices in our world. Our increasingly diverse society also requires social workers who demonstrate cultural competence and respect for the individual's right to self determination."
