I’m Megan, and I’m a senior social work major from Hobart, IN. My senior field placement was at the Foster Care Department at Campagna Academy in Schererville, IN. The exciting opportunities I experienced included participating in fost child home studies, attending court and school meetings with foster children, assisting in the licensing of foster parents, and engaging in foster parent training and support groups. My junior year placement was with Family House, a safe home-like environment where non-custodial parents could spend time with their children under supervision. At the conclusion of my junior internship, I was hired as a visit supervisor at Family House where I continued gaining experience working with unique and vulnerable populations. Within the next few years, I plan to complete graduate school and pursue my career at an adoption agency. end
