MK Sullivan, LMSW, received her Master of Social Work from Tulane University and a certificate in Disaster, Mental Health, and Trauma Studies. She is licensed to practice social work in the State of Louisiana. MK began working with the Orleans Public Defenders in 2018 as a social work intern while completing her masters. Upon obtaining licensure, she was hired at OPD as Alternatives to Incarceration Social Worker through Louisiana’s Justice Reinvestment Initiative (JRI)-- legislation designed to reduce recidivism and remove barriers to successful reentry.
Prior to moving to New Orleans, MK served as the Alabama State Refugee Coordinator under the Office of Refugee Resettlement. In this role, she led a team of case managers, job developers, immigration specialists, and interpreters from multicultural backgrounds to aid in the resettlement of refugees throughout Alabama. Her experience of working with refugees, immigrants, and defendants in the criminal justice system has fueled the desire to provide support to individuals with complex trauma histories, addiction, and serious mental illnesses.
