"I'm currently working at Seattle's Union Gospel Mission. I am the coordinator for an outreach we do called The Bridge. I am also the Receptionist Support Assistant for the Volunteer Engagement Team. Since graduating with my social work degree, I have used the skills I've gained to work in areas of case management and program development for the homeless community in Seattle. I am in graduate school at Northwest University pursuing a Master's of Arts in International Community Development too. My social work degree was very foundational for all of this and equipped me well."
