Her current job responsibilities include supervising of case managers, providing case management services to families, and supervising Social Work interns through the University of Missouri and other area colleges.

Shireen’s philosophy is that “a multidisciplinary team approach is the best way to address complicated client issues. That is why I believe a social work perspective could really benefit dLife and its users.”
