Tracey McFarlane joined Turning Point for Women and Families as an MSW intern in Spring 2022. She lives in Jamaica, Queens. She was born and raised in Jamaica, West Indies. She decided to become a social worker because she wants to advocate for people who are in need. Her interest in the field is working with victims and survivors of domestic violence. She graduated with her bachelor’s last year at York College and is currently getting her master’s in social work from Fordham University. Growing up, she has seen a lot of women who have experienced some form of violence from their partner. This made her realize that there are a lot of women who have experienced intimate partner violence who are afraid and or ashamed to open up about their experience. She would like to be someone who is able to help these women with the knowledge and resources they need to help them overcome their trauma.
