My name is Alejandra Cortez, and I am currently on the road to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker!

A quick about me: I attended USC for my undergraduate degree in Sociology. As an LA native, I decided to leave LA after graduating and moved to Chicago and volunteered for a year with a program called City Year. There I discovered my calling to Social Work and uplifting communities. I came back to USC for the MSW program, and every step along the way I knew it was the right path. During my Masters Program, I was involved with the Latino/a Social Work Caucus, USC Graduate Student Government, and serving on the Greater Cypress Park Neighborhood Council! After graduation, I started my journey as a Clinical Social Worker providing mental health services as a therapist. I love the social work profession and hope others get to see the fantastic things we do!
