About Me


My name is Justine Sparling. For the past two and a half years, I have been working as a Social Worker in a community legal clinic setting.  I have also been studying my Masters of Social Work with a specialization in Leadership in Human Services at the University of Calgary which I will be graduating in April 2017. This blog was initially used as a tool for me to reflect on my practice and integrate my learnings during my practicum. I have shifted the use of this blog to reflect on recent travels and experiences as I prepare to move abroad in February 2017.

I am passionate about building strong and healthy communities, social justice, human and animal rights, travelling, and maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle.
