I am so grateful for the opportunities that NASW of VT have given me, and NASW of VT has changed my career for the better in only about a year of being a member.  Within a month of joining NASW of VT after moving from NYC,  Angela Paoli, the NASW of VT president, reached out, and asked me what I was interested in and how she could support me in my career as a social worker.  When we talked, I shared that I was struggling to find my community in social work and shared my passion of working with animals in social work.  Despite outreach to programs, I had struggled to find a space where I could practice in the way that I wanted to as a social worker.  Angela met me in person to further support me, and because of the connections that she made for me through NASW, I found my dream job as the executive director for a therapeutic horseback riding program.   NASW even provided me the opportunity to teach a webinar and an in person training on the topic that I am most passionate about in social work.  I have been to two NASW VT conferences, and have left both feeling invigorated because of the knowledge and connections that I have gained at this conference.  If you are feeling stuck in your career as a social worker, I would highly recommend joining NASW VT!
