My name is Leanne and I am a 2016 graduate candidate for the school of social work program at the State University at Buffalo. I have previously participated in SUNY Buffalo’s Tanzania Community Development Program in 2015, and have also studied at La Sorbonne in Paris during my undergraduate studies in 2010.
I am interested in macro-focused, international social work, specifically pertaining to access to clean water, human trafficking, policy/advocacy, and child welfare. I currently work at a nonprofit agency in Buffalo, NY as a care coordinator in Preventive Services.
My goal is to ultimately work with an international organization, so I look to gain as much experience in different cultures’ systems, as well as become familiar with program/intervention implementation on a global scale.
I am also enthusiastically passionate about traveling because I feel it is one of the greatest adventures we can pursue.
