Meet A Social Worker - Shannon Massingale

Shannon Massingale Social Worker profile picture - 3/03/2020

“I work with Behavioral health and child welfare. I also work closely with insurance companies and the court system to make sure people’s needs are met. Social work is important to our community because we fill in the gaps. We wear many hats! My roles often include: advocate, therapist, educator, coordinator, liaison, facilitator, researcher and case manager. In each capacity I have the privilege of being involved in the lives of others who are up against some very difficult challenges.  They allow me be a part of their journeys and the weight of that privilege is not lost on me.” 

– Shannon Massingale, LCSW, director of care coordination, Lakeview Center
