"Viktor Frankl articulates well my thoughts on social work and social work education: "Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone's task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it." I remain thrilled over the fact that social work, as a profession, offers an opportunity for many to live out their own specific "vocation or mission in life" in such a meaningful way."

"As a teacher I am constantly challenged and encouraged by social work students' own unique story and unique vocation or mission in life. No two are alike, just like no two stories or sets of needs of the clients we work alongside are alike. I was honored for the many years I had the opportunity to work with each client in a unique and creative way and now I thoroughly enjoy participating in the equipping of others to continue that work. I feel strongly about the importance of equipping those in this profession with critical thinking, skill usage, and innovative use of research."
