2015  Distinguished Social Work Practice Award granted by NASW -GA
I am very honored and humbled to have received two
awards on the 20th anniversary of my career in private
practice; the 2015 Distinguished Social Work Practice
Award and the 2015 Kenneth F. Jasnau Community
Practice/Community Organizing Award granted by the
National Association of Social Workers (NASW).
Amazingly, I have been recognized on a year that is so
meaningful to me in my professional career. Twenty
years ago, I began as a solo practitioner and from a
"one-woman show" my clinical practice grew into a full
service clinic providing behavioral health services to
the State of Georgia Accountability Courts, with six
facilities throughout Metro Atlanta and the most
outstanding and dedicated clinical team. I could not be
more thankful to everyone who has touched my life
throughout the past two decades. I am blessed to have
you as a very important part of my life. Professionally,
there is no higher honor than to be recognized by your
peers, those who truly and deeply know the quality of
your work and the passion with which you serve your
community. I can honestly say that I have dedicated my
life to a profession that has filled my life with the
highest possible reward ... helping others.
