Courtney found an interest in behavioral health while volunteering at the crisis center. Most of her supervisors at the center were MSWs and LCSWs which inspired her to work towards her MSW.
She claims that during her first few years of undergraduate study, she had a hard time finding her niche; so she began volunteering at the crisis center. It was there that she realized that she was skilled at crisis intervention and others appreciated her effort.
Courtney asserts that due to her time with the crisis center, “I knew my purpose and passion was not too far away, and I was right,” and that “I wouldn’t trade my social work profession or my experience at Grambling State University for anything in the world.”
