Samantha studied psychology at Bergen Community college. This is where her journey into social work began. While pursuing her Associate degree, Samantha met a friend at Ramapo College of New Jersey, who inspired her path when she was recommended to look into a program at Ramapo and instantly, she knew she had found where she wanted to be. Within getting her Bachelor’s at Ramapo College, Samantha interned at Transitional Professionals and 2nd Home Adult Day Care in Paterson. After working at 2nd Home for the last year of her degree, completing her bachelor’s and becoming a certified Social Worker, that’s when she had found her calling and knew she specifically wanted to work in the substance use field. Samantha wishes to expand her experience and looks forward to a future of being able to make a difference in the BlueCrest community.
