Quinnipiac University alumni, Pamela Shepperd, completed her Long-Term Care (LTC) Certificate program in 2013. It took 15 months to complete the program and she passed the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB) in December 2013. After earning her Master of Social Work (MSW) at Fordham University, she decided to pursue long-term care. Pam has also succeeded in becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Nursing Home Administrator (NHA).
She has been a social worker at her company, Hancock Hall & Filosa in Danbury, CT, for three years. Pam was sponsored by her company to complete the LTC Administration program and continue working for the third-generation run organization. In January 2014, Pam was promoted to Director of Social Services at Hancock Hall and Filosa. She is now responsible for managing the social services needs of both Filosa facilities, and she has taken on Administrative responsibilities including monitoring managed care cases.
The LTC Certificate allowed Pam to continue the hands-on social work that she loves, while advancing at a company for which she has much faith in. When asked about why Pam chose Quinnipiac, she explained that it was “for [Quinnipiac’s] strong reputation, ease and convenience of classes, and fulfillment of her longtime dream to attend Quinnipiac.”
