Annie Olsen-Meehan, Ewing Marion Kauffman School, KU MSW
Annie remembers sitting in a social work class at KU and deciding this is what I want to do. It wasn't just about helping people, but it was also appealing to her that she would have multiple career paths or avenues after graduation. After completing her BSW, she knew she wanted to apply to the master's program, so she could do more with her degree especially in terms of clinical work. She is now the senior school social worker at the Ewing Marion Kauffman School. Her primary job responsibility is counseling the students. She meets with students each day and just loved it from the very beginning.
