I currently work for Community Care Behavioral Health, a managed care company.
I received my Master of Social Work degree from Marywood University in 2005. I currently work for Community Care Behavioral Health, a managed care company. As a Care Manager, I am responsible for assisting members identified at risk for recidivism, discontinuous care, or as members of priority or special needs populations who present with complex needs for coordination of their behavioral health services with other aspects of their care.
My Master of Social Work degree from Marywood has helped me advance my career to a position in which candidates are specifically chosen based upon a targeted area of practice, supported by education, training, and experience, with expertise in the delivery of behavioral health care to a given population.
The small class settings, option to take classes on weekends, and part-time program were imperative in allowing me to work towards this degree. I value my degree and highly recommend Marywood for anyone seeking a degree in the social work field.
