About the Social Worker

 

I am very excited to start my first full year at OLC. I started my career at OLC in January during the 2016-2017 academic school year as OLC’s Social Worker. I graduated from The University of Scranton with a Bachelor’s in Counseling and Human Services and attended Fordham University where I received my Master’s in Social Work with a Clinical Concentration. I have since received my license to practice social work in both New York and New Jersey. My career path has taken me to working with children, adolescents, and families in many capacities, such as schools and mental health clinics. My passion for this career stems from the fact that everyone has a voice and deserves to be heard. From the beginning of my career at OLC I have felt at home in working with the staff, students, and families. Whether it is meeting with students, coaching the volleyball team, or working aftercare; OLC has become the perfect fit for me and I look forward to what the new school year has to offer!

 

My passion for as long as I can remember, has been helping others. Being raised in a family of service these attributes were instilled in me from a young age. Attending a Jesuit college and graduate school further developed me being a person for others. My other passions include reading, playing volleyball, running, and playing with my five-year old rabbit (not your ordinary household pet, I know)!

 

Please feel free to reach out to me with anything you may need at oconnork@olcschool.org and I look forward to another great school year with the great community that is OLC!
