Update from Stacey Rahl, BSW '11

I graduated from NYU almost 3 years ago with my MSW, and am lucky to work in the state of Connecticut for The ALS Association Connecticut Chapter (a non-profit organization), where I work directly with people living with ALS and their families in their homes, clinics, nursing homes, etc. -while also working in advocacy and public policy, program development, community education, managing my Care Services Team, fundraising and more. It is truly an all-encompassing job, as it seems to be in many social work careers. I have my BSW from Marist to thank for jump starting my interest and passion for social work, and for providing me with a solid foundation to continue to learn and grow as a professional. (I still keep in touch with my cohort too which is awesome!) Missing my days at Marist, I can’t believe it will be 4 years this May since graduation in 2011. I'm happy to talk to any students in the BSW program, or looking into it, as well.
