Sharise Nance’s ‘S.W.A.G. Awards’ puts local social workers in the spotlight
Initially, Nance, a Pittsburgh native, wanted to be a child psychologist. After being hands-on for quite some time, she realized that the problems were systemic, and decided that she needed to work on the system at-large. Nance entered social work in 2003 at the University of Pittsburgh and found it was so broad to keep herself on her toes and to challenge herself, she started a private practice as soon as she could.
