The JourneyI wonder what it's like?I'm sure some people thought I was making a mistake. I had a great job with a great salary, a great pension and a great leader. I was doing work that I actually cared about. And yet with all of this, I kept thinking "I wonder what it's like to work at Overlap?"But I'm not a designer, I'm a social worker!I'm a clinical social worker and therapist by trade. I've worked in many different places and spaces doing clinical work and in leadership roles. I've worked as a child welfare intake worker, as a network administrator, a sexual assault response team counsellor, as an LGBTQ public educator and recently as a 'system planner' in addictions and mental health. To me, it didn't always matter as much where I worked as long as I was having a positive impact and I was excited about the work.
