After getting her undergraduate degree in the Mount's excellent Social Work program, Darlene found her niche. After several years of doing what she enjoyed she was looking for advancement and a change while staying in the field.
Darlene chose to return to the Mount and now she is moving onward and upward.
But as she says it was the help of her new friends (called "The Divas") in her MSOL co-hort which helped her along the way. They built a strong support group which survives and they call continue to call on one another for advice.
