After graduating from ENC, Eileen was accepted to both Simmons and University of Maryland in Advanced Standing. She decided to attend the University of Maryland and was accepted into the Title IV-E program, which is a program that pays for school if you intern for child welfare services and then accept a job in child welfare for a year.  Eileen interned at Carroll County Department of Social Services in the In-Home Family Services unit from September until May, working with a total of 6 families in order to aid them in obtaining additional services and resources as well as provide support and guidance.  During her internship Eileen had the rare opportunity to take a case to court (not normally done by students) and obtain an Order of Protective Supervision on one of her clients.  When she graduated in May of 2008, she interviewed and obtained a job at Carroll County DSS in the same unit in which she interned.  In May of 2008, Eileen obtained her license: LGSW (Licensed Graduate Social Worker) and is now working to obtain the needed supervision hours in order to get her LCSW-C (Licensed Certified Social Worker- Clinical).  With this, she plans to pursue a supervisory position in Child Welfare.
