About the Presenters:

Jorie Schwartz, MSW, LISW-S, is a licensed social worker in Columbus. She is a 1997 graduate of the MSW program at The Ohio State University and has worked primarily in the areas of community mental health and school-based prevention doing direct services and program management. She worked as a field coordinator for the College of Social Work at OSU and is now in what she describes as her “dream job” as Associate Professor of Social Work and Human Services at Columbus State Community College. She has worked with students in the classroom and in field practicum for most of her career.

“I have the opportunity to teach and advise many of the students in our program at Columbus State. My favorite part of the job is seeing those light bulb moments, especially when they discover a passion for the field. My students amaze me in their willingness to push themselves, especially in practicum. I love working with students who are an active part of their learning.”


Angela Fry, MSW, LISW-S, graduated from The Ohio State University with a BSSW and MSW. She has worked at several agencies in Columbus, Ohio.  The bulk of Angela’s work has focused on trauma and abuse. 
Angela’s first job out of school was at CHOICES, a domestic violence agency in Columbus as a case manager for the women staying at the shelter.  Angela then worked at Catholic Social Services for ten years in a variety of capacities: as a home-based clinician working with families involved with child protective services; as an individual, couple’s and group counseling clinician; and finally, as the Clinical Supervisor.
After a long ten years at the same agency, Angela ventured out to try some new things and worked for a period with children who had been sexually abused, as well as in the foster care arena.  Eventually, landing back at the original point, she went back to CHOICES in the role of Clinical Supervisor for several years.  Angela is currently an Associate Professor in the Social & Human Services program at Columbus State Community College.
