    Julia Magas (she/her)

    I am pursuing my MSW in geriatric social work. I hope to use my degree to shape an adaptive program for older adults with disabilities. I notice that a lot of adaptive programming is available for young people with disabilities; however, there seems to be a disparity of programs for older adults. I hope to be an advocate for older adults with disabilities and ensure that they have programming that supports and enriches their quality of life.

    Alumni Panelists Ashley Elliston-Cowher (she/her)

    I graduated from undergrad at UM with majors in Psychology and Spanish and minors in CASC and IGR. After graduating, I attended the University of Michigan School of Social Work and graduated with my MSW in 2018. During the MSW program, I had a focus of Aging Adults in Society and Management of Human Services which landed me in a field placement at the Alzheimer's Association. After graduating, I was hired as a social worker/ program coordinator at the Alzheimer's Association where I worked for more than a year before transition into a Research Administration role back at University of Michigan with LSA. My long-term goals involve non-profit management and work with foundations and grants, so my current position is helping me build the skills I need to better understand concepts in finance and grant funding. My recent volunteer experiences include being a delivery driver with Meals on Wheels, build days with Habitat for Humanity, and most recently phone backing with MI Dems.

She is currently a Medical Case Manager at Health Emergency Lifeline Programs (HELP), a social service agency which serves people living with HIV. In her work at HELP, Brittney has been a strong advocate for the unique needs of people aging with HIV, and has utilized her tailored skill set to assist colleagues outside of case management who are also serving older adult clients. Her hope is that with continued advocacy and a substantial amount of hard work, the voices of older adults will be elevated, and their needs will no longer be treated as burdensome, or an afterthought.

I received my BSN and CASC minor in 2015. I had wonderful experiences providing service during my education in Southfield and Hamtramck, Michigan and Quito, Ecuador.

Before becoming a nurse I was a Doula and attended to a woman in labor for the first time when I was 18. For the past 12 years I have attended to women in hospitals around the lower peninsula as a Doula. In 2017 I worked as the Lactation Counselor/RN for Pediatric Care Corner in West Bloomfield.
