Hi, I'm Mollie Staggs. Although now a doctoral candidate, I did not find my social work calling until the end of my undergrad schooling. I discovered my love for non-profit, micro to mezzo level social work from volunteering for one of my classes for extra credit. I followed that passion and became an independently licensed social worker, applying my interests and skills as a mental health therapist and foster care specialist for KVC Behavioral Kentucky for a handful of years. With my experience working with the Medicaid population, I began to work directly with one of the largest Medicaid MCSOs in Kentucky, Then, I took my current position at Humana Health Horizons as a behavioral health care manager. I work with healthcare members who present with SMI/SED of all ages to advocate collaborating to improve their navigation with the healthcare system. Now, as I near the completion of my doctorate in social work, I am seeking more macro-level work to make more significant, more visible impacts on the communities I love and serve.
