Why did you choose your area of study? I’ve always been interested in helping people, so I’ve decided to dedicate the second half of my working life to doing just that.

What do you find most interesting about your internship at Wolverine Human Services? Getting real world experience, and getting to apply the theories and techniques I’ve learned so far.

What inspiration do you draw from the youth and/or staff at Wolverine Human Services? I haven’t worked a lot with the youth yet, but the staff have been extremely friendly and supportive so far, and are inspiring in the fact that they’re “in the trenches” doing the real work on a daily basis.

What else should we know about you? I’m here to help!
