Social Work

Why Humboldt Public Sociology

I am a social worker for aged, blind, and alter-abled individuals who need care support in the home. I find it is like a rabbit hole when recognizing that the clients I serve don't often have access to some basic technologies. Humboldt County provides an opportunity for me to research my interest and potentially give back my target populations.

About Humboldt Public Sociology

My actual experience with the program is minimal, but every person involved that I've encountered so far is encouraging and inspiring.

Favorite Place to See/Visit in Humboldt County

Table Bluff/south jetty. You can walk on the beach for miles in privacy and peace.
