People at Laurier

Amy Lings, Faculty of Social Work Prior to finding herself in the MSW program at Laurier, Amy Lings spent time as a crisis counsellor and as a teacher in Asia. Her time on the other side of the world gave her the opportunity to realize and develop a passion for the social work profession. Amy’s desire to further her education, without compromising her love of working in an international setting led her to pursue her MSW at Laurier. “The fact that I could get my degree while gaining international experience made Laurier the perfect fit for me” says Amy, whose career goals include working with victims of violence in developing countries. Although Laurier seemed a perfect fit for Amy, the challenges of suffering from an invisible disability caused her anxiety. “I was worried I would be judged or discriminated against, a common occurrence, but I have found the community of social work to be very understanding and accommodating. And with their support I am heading to China for my next practicum!”
