My name is Valerie and I’m currently enrolled in the Social Work Diploma program at Mount Royal University. I also hold a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. I am undertaking my practicum with CommunityWise from January-April 2017. I am intrigued by Social Work at the macro level so the community based programs, initiatives and general framework of CommunityWise is of interest to me. I’m most looking forward to enhancing my understanding of the evidently critical role that CommunityWise plays within the community and among its members as well as society on a larger scale. Clearly CommunityWise is a valuable and integral member of community as well as a conceptual and actual home base for many and I consider myself lucky to be part of the team during my practicum.
I am also a Mom to two little boys (4&7)!
