Since graduating in November 2006, my education path has varied slightly. Currently I am working in Columbus with Directions for Youth and Families. I provide counseling, community support and clinical support services to both children and their families. I use my Early Childhood background in working with my client's ages 5-7 and 8-17 also. Services include dealing with behavioral issues, anger/violence, low self-esteem and neglect and are provided in the home, community, and school. It is a rewarding career choice. I plan to continue in this field pursuing a Master's degree in Social Work."

"My time and preparation spent at Northern, especially learning and growing in the Education Department, has greatly influenced the kind of services I provide as well as the kind of person I project as a professional."
