Starting out!

I have been a practicing social worker for seven years. This year I was fortunate to supervise an MSW student during her field internship. Penn School of Social Policy and Practice (SP2) generously offered a training course for first-time supervisors that was enormously helpful to me in this new role. This experience--and my experience of offering informal supervision to my peers--has led me here. Supervising has opened a whole new chapter of learning for me that I am deeply humbled by and grateful for. I am so excited to begin this journey.

Supervision is a lifelong process and I continue to seek it myself, to grow my skills and work through the personal stuff that comes up in my practice. Because I continue to work in the field full-time, I have a unique understanding of the joys and challenges of healthcare social work. You can find my areas of expertise in the About section. 

Thank you for visiting my site and getting to know me! I hope to connect with you soon. For today, I leave you with this from the National Association of Social Workers: "Supportive supervision is underscored by a climate of safety and trust, where supervisees can develop their sense of professional identity." Wherever you are in your practice, I look forward to being a part of your development.
