In this episode, our guest Nicole Clark, LMSW, describes her journey from agency practitioner to self-employed, independent consultant. Ms. Clark discusses how she embraced the entrepreneurial spirit, moved forward, and eventually made a headlong leap into beginning her own business.

Nicole Clark, LMSW, is a licensed social worker, independent consultant, and reproductive justice (RJ) activist who uses the RJ framework with nonprofits, government agencies, and community groups to design, implement, and evaluate programs and services.

Along with one-to-one client work, Nicole provides in-person and remote trainings on topics related to social work, evaluation, and reproductive justice. She also facilitates workshops related to feminism, parent-child communication, sexuality and spirituality, and other issues that impact women and girls of color.
