Hello! My name is Mikayla Carroll and I have recently become a part of the MLJ team as a Master of Social Work Intern. This is my first year in the MSW program at IUPUI and I am set to graduate in May 2020. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a minor in Psychology from Indiana University in Bloomington. Once graduating from IU, I had the opportunity to work for Centerstone and work in the Children and Family Department working with majority elementary aged students, it was here I discovered my passion for the social work field.
Upon graduating from the MSW program I am unsure what I want to focus on. However, I am interested in adoption and school social work, and am hoping to find my place!
In my free time (which I must admit is not a lot) I enjoy spending time with my four dogs, Sadie, Link, Dalton and Cooper…yes, I have four, planning my wedding to my wonderful fiancé this August and spending time with my family and friends.
One of my greatest passions is traveling. To date I have been to over 14 countries including France, Austria, Mexico, Belize, as well as several others, with several more trips planned in the future! I am hopeful that my love of working with children, making a difference and traveling can be pulled together to make for an excellent time spent here at MLJ Adoptions.
One of my biggest goals in life is to adopt myself. I believe that my time spent at MLJ will allow me the opportunity to work toward a better understanding and allow me to adopt one day!
So excited to be working with you all over the next few months!
