About her career aspirations and personal goals, in her Cornaro application Elizabeth wrote: “I aspire to become a licensed clinical social worker. My ideal career is to work as a counselor, interacting with individuals, families and groups. I am interested in working with a variety of populations, including people with cancer, mental illness, and eating and body issues, as well as people in grief. My aspirations to be a social worker and live a fulfilling Christian life both apply to the KGP motto of faith and service. Service is the primary principle of the social work professional mission. One of the richest ways in which I experience God is through loving and serving my brothers and sisters.”
