Participant Profile

Michelle Garraway

Policy Advisor, Innovation & Research, Social Services Department, Regional Municipality of Durham

BA Psychology & Criminology, 2009

When I was in school I had no idea what I could do with my degree, I just knew that I wanted to help people and influence change. Five years after graduating I'm in my dream job that I didn't even know existed. I've worked on the front lines in social services in a halfway house, with youth, and in welfare, and now I get to lead innovation projects and build a culture of excellence in my organization. I help the people I work with and the people of my community every day and I love doing it.
