President (2022-2023)

Jennifer Peck
Biographical Statement
Jennifer Peck has celebrated her first AK-versary in January of 2022. In that time, I have practiced clinical social work in Pennsylvania via Teletherapy, licensed in the state of Alaska, and just opening my solo private practice in Anchorage, AK. I immersed myself in learning about Alaska and Alaskan culture to gain an understanding of the needs and strengths of our community. Currently, I am the Vice-President on the NASW-Alaska Chapter, Board of Directors. I am a co-chair of the Conference Planning Committee for two consecutive conferences and have participated with the Social Action Committee. I am a proud member of NASW and EMDRIA, the EMDR International Association.

Platform Statement
In serving on the Board of Directors for one year, I feel inspired by the passion and commitment of Alaskan Social Workers to continue my commitment to promote the social work profession, advance social work practice, shape public policy, advocate to enhance the well-being of individuals, families, and communities in Alaska while promoting social justice by serving another term on the Board of Directors. To truly advocate for change, we must engage in taking on leadership roles that represent our social work community on a macro level, and that is my motivation to continue to represent all Alaskan Social Workers through NASW. I have heard you loud and clear, supervision, continuing education credits, and representation continue to be needs of our members. I am currently working on various projects to meet the needs of our members and would love the opportunity to continue to represent your voice as the President-Elect for the 2022-2023 term. Thank you!
