Lauren Ridge

Class of 2006
Major/Minor: Sociology

After I left WAC I went back to my hometown in NJ and went to Monmouth Unv. School of Social Work to pursue a Master’s degree. I graduated with my MSW and also I am a licensed social worker. It was two hard years of graduate school and hours of interning but well worth the knowledge and friendships that came from it.

I work for the City of Alexandria social services—Office of Aging and Adult Services. I’m an Adult service worker and carry a caseload of anywhere between 40-60 clients. I’ve been here 2 yrs in August and I am enjoying the experience. It’s a great first job as I work with so many different agencies as well as professionals for many backgrounds. Ideally, I’d like to go work with children with disabilities in a school setting but I’m learning tons right now and enjoying myself.
