Biography

Hello! My name is Camryn Ridpath and I am currently a junior social work major at Longwood University. During my time at Longwood, I have had the opportunity to be a part of many amazing groups and organizations which have afforded me a great perspective on collaboration and leadership. In addition to my involvement in organizations on campus, I also had the incredible opportunity to intern at the Infant and Toddler Connection of the Heartland this past semester (spring 2021). Interning at ITC-Heartland was a wonderful experience that allowed me to grow in my professional confidence and evolve as a student social worker alongside many amazing team members. I am so excited to see where I will be placed for my senior internship! In regards to my future plans, I hope to pursue a career working with children with mental health or behavioral concerns. I have always had a passion for advocating for mental wellness and making people feel seen and valued and I hope to bring this passion to my work as a mental health professional.
