Hi Katie...I'm a new social worker as well from Morehead, KY. I'm working in my field placement right now and graduate in December 2012! I'll have my BSW and I'm so excited! I did some case management at a homeless shelter last year and I loved it.

Hi from a fresh out-of-school social worker! emoticon

I'm Katie. I'm 26 years-old from South Carolina. I graduated with my BSW in May. However, I work as a case manager at a shelter and have been for four years. We provide short-term (up to 45 days) and long-term (indefinitely) care for children in CPS custody. I handle all their paperwork and appointments and teach independent living skills for the older youth (ages 13 to 18). I LOVE my job...even though we currently have 13 kids and the amount of paperwork and appointments has felt a bit overwhelming lately.

I joined sparkpeople because my weight has yo-yoed a lot in the past 5 years. I've used a lot of quick-fix and unhealthy methods in the past to help me lose weight. I want to lose the weight I put back on, but only by doing it the right way! I was glad to see there was a social workers team on here, and I'm excited to be here! emoticon
