I am a dual MPH/MSW student with a concentration in Behavioral Health. Currently, I am working with individuals who suffer from co-occurring mental disorders and are involved with the criminal justice system. My ideal job is to blend the roles of public health and social work in a community-based mental health agency setting. My favorite thing about BHSO is the friendship and camaraderie that is shared between members.
