Hello my name is Jessica Greathouse and I work as the Clinical Specialist at CHOICES, Inc. I started working at CHOICES in August of 2012. Prior to working at CHOICES, I was studying at the University of Cincinnati, working towards my master’s degree in clinical social work. I graduated in June of 2012. I obtained my bachelors degree in social work fromWright State University in 2011. I am currently an LSW working towards my independent social work license.
I was born in Colorado Springs area and moved to Dayton at the age of four. I grew up in Beavercreek and in my family I have 4 sisters. As an adult I moved toKettering and I have lived in Kettering for the last five years. I have two small children ages 5 and 9, who I love more than anything, and they are my biggest inspiration to help children have stable loving homes.
I am excited to learn and grow as a social worker at CHOICES. I struggled through college as a mom trying to make a better life for her children. Many people said that I would never be able to obtain a higher education with two small children; but a social worker I interned for in my freshmen year was such a supporter of my dream I knew I could. I hope to be an inspiration to the foster children and families I work with, as I truly believe that people are able to attain their dreams if others support and encourage them.
