Amber Alaniz, LMSW (she/they)

PhD student, School of Social Work

I am bicultural, chronically ill, and a first generation college student. Before returning to earn my MSW, I worked in an array of social work experiences, including sexual violence prevention advocate, domestic violence shelter advocate, and a supported community living house supervisor of multiple residential sites. I am also a member of Iowa’s Olmstead Consumer Taskforce to advocate for full inclusion of people with disabilities throughout our systems ,(i.e., housing, employment, transportation, healthcare, child welfare, criminal legal, etc.).
