Why did you choose to pursue an MSW degree? Because I had been wanting to be a therapist since I was 16. I originally was going through psychology but then worked in mental health and found all the therapists were LCSW. So I decided to go that route.

How did BYU's MSW program prepare you for your career? It has totally prepared me to deal with a variety of situations. I feel more confident in my abilities because I had such grounded foundations.
What are your career goals? I am where I want to be in the public schools and working in private practice one night a week. I also have gotten my LCSW.
