Each of our amazing board members chose the profession of social work for a reason and we would like to share their stories with you. Stay tuned for a post about each of the social workers who represent YOU on the NASW-NC Board.
Ann Marie Gore
Coastal District Representative (2013-2015)
What led you to choosing social work as your profession?
My mother was a nurse for hospice and home health for 15 years and I did a lot of volunteer worth with the geriatric population.
Went to East Carolina University (ECU) as an intended physics major and quickly figured out that I did not want to do math for the rest of my life.
Took a semester full of random classes and met a great professor who talked me into majoring in social work because of my desire and passion to work with the elderly.
Graduated from ECU and was not able to find a job in the field that I wanted at a home health/hospice agency, but did find a job at ECU in the Dean of Students Office as a Case Manager for Threat Assessment.
