Sherrell A. Thomas-Nelson.
How long at MUSC: Seven months.
(I was previously employed at MUSC as a social worker and I left and
Last book read: Their Eyes Were
Watching God, by Zora Neale Hurston.
Community service: I am involved
in community activities through my church.
Pet peeve: I don’t like visitors
to come to my home without calling first.
What led you to choose social work as a
career: I always had an interest in helping people. My summer
job as a teen was always in a community-based program helping others.
Favorite local landmark: Avery
What makes MUSC different from other
social work job settings you’ve worked in: By working in a
teaching hospital, I have a chance to meet different people from
various backgrounds and experiences.
Someone famous you would like to meet:
Something your parents told you:
Be able to take of yourself without depending on anyone.
Something you have tried once and will
never do again: Whitewater rafting.
What one piece of advice would you
share with social workers starting work at MUSC: You will carry
many responsibilities and you will always be surrounded by new
challenges. However, don’t sweat the small stuff, and don’t carry the
issues of the people you are trying to help home with you.
