Lydia Bumpers, MSW Practicum Student
My name is Lydia Bumpers - I'm originally from Mobile, Alabama, but I've lived in Denver for two years now. I'm in my concentration year of study at Metropolitan State University and am currently pursuing a Masters in Social Work with a concentration in management and leadership. I was drawn to IN! because of my interest in intellectual and developmental disabilities and the wide range of available opportunities to learn skills in the macro realm of social work and nonprofit management. I've done clinical work at a mental health center for the past two years but am eager to shift gears to focus on fundraising, program evaluation, and advocacy. In my free time, I enjoy quarantining alone in my apartment with my two cats, Goose and Pantaloon (Pants for short).
