Full Circle is helping celebrate National Social Work Month in March and the beginning of a new decade with the theme “Social Workers: Generations Strong.” Each week during the month of March, we will be highlighting some of our amazing social workers here at Full Circle.

Today, we are proud to introduce you to Caroline Lavoie, our Social Work Intern here at Full Circle.

Caroline is a student at VCU with her Bachelors of Social Work (BSW) and will be graduating in May 2020 with her Masters of Social Work (MSW).

Why did you get into Social Work?

I knew I wanted to be a social worker ever since childhood. The social work profession aligns most closely with my personal values and personality traits: the importance of human relationships, the dignity and worth of all people, service, social justice, and integrity. Social work is a diverse profession with rich meaning, purposeful action, and gives me a direct avenue to make a difference in this world.

“It is rewarding and deeply meaningful work that brings me great purpose daily.”

What is unique about Full Circle?

Full Circle puts the clients at the center of their work and as their motivation. The agency has a strong sense of ethical practice and decision making and uses an evidence-based approach to all of their practices.

Full Circle has dynamic workers who genuinely enjoy each other and the work they are doing, which is rare to find! They are passionate about providing support to individuals, families, groups of people, and the Richmond community.

“It is unique to work for a place that is able to balance services to such a diverse audience.”

Thank you Caroline, for sharing with us! And thank you for your meaningful work, both here at Full Circle and within our RVA community. You are truly making a difference. As Dr. Seuess would say “oh the places you will go!”
