Congratulations Ashley Hill (’14) for being accepted into the University of West Florida Master’s in Social Work program.

“I will start the Social Work Program at the University of West Florida to get my M.S.W.  The program is full time 60 semester hours so I should be done in 2 years. I went to high school in Pensacola and absolutely love the community. The fact that the UWF MSW  program works closely with the families in the Pensacola community is what drew me to this program. I am especially excited to start the practicum part of the program! During my time at SHC I volunteered at Wilmer Hall Children’s Home and interned at BayPointe LesMoyne School. By volunteering and interning I realized I love working with kids so after I get my MSW I hope to work in the child welfare field of social work.

"(I am) currently pursuing an accelerated BSN/MSN in psychiatric nursing. I hope to establish myself in the mental health care industry by providing holistic, integrative and collaborative care to patients with a variety of psychological and psychiatric disorders. I have worked within inpatient, outpatient and private practice treatment facilities as a student shadow and mental health technician. I maintain a special interest in whole-person medicine, addressing my future patients as mental and emotional beings, members of communities and of physical bodies. I aim to integrate conventional mental health care, the use of drugs and psychotherapy, with alternative and complementary approaches.
