Phylicia McCord
"Hi! I am a transfer student from Sacramento, CA. Weber State is my third college and Social Work is my fifth major. Without a doubt, life has taught me to embrace change and roll with the punches but I could not be happier to have discovered the Social Work profession. I work on campus as a Resident Assistant (RA) and am passionate about assisting others as well as advocating for residents. I am interested in serving several populations and therefore am excited to gain experience working with a variety of demographics. I am excited for the opportunity to be involved with the club this semester!"
