With a Bachelor of Social Work, and the Early Childhood Education III diploma she is well equipped to deal with families in crisis.  As the leader of our Learn and Play Program, Susan offers young children and their guardians the opportunity to learn how to engage and grow with others in similar situations.  As the parish social worker Susan offer counseling and referral services while addressing the various social needs of children, families, and individuals.

The aim of the Parish Social worker is to encourage individual/family/community well-being by promoting healthy relationships with self/God/others. Consistency and unconditional acceptance of the person/family/and community without judgment are essential. Successful work with people whose trust has been broken by systems and individuals requires a rebuilding of trust that takes time and personal professional investment. The Social Worker provides counseling, advocacy, and referral services to all ages.
