Social Worker, O'Connell House in Monterey
Amy first came to Gould Farm as a volunteer in 2004, serving as a work leader on the Roadside and Farm work program teams and providing residential support in the guest houses. Her experience of the transformative work at Gould Farm led her to pursue a social work degree, and she graduated from SUNY Albany with her Masters in Social Work (MSW) in 2014. For more than 10 years, Amy has worked to support families and their loved ones in a number of roles in Berkshire County. She has provided case management, individual therapy, advocacy, and assistance navigating complex service systems. Amy is familiar with a variety of services, organizations and opportunities in the Berkshires, and plans to use those connections to assist guests as they look to transition to greater independence in the area. Amy believes strongly in people's capacity for change, and in all of her professional roles has worked to empower people as they take steps towards their identified goals.
