Amanda Keefe: Helping Others Help Themselves

AmandaAmanda Keefe enrolled at Georgian Court knowing exactly what she wanted to do with her life—practice law. But as she excelled in her major—criminal justice—she learned substance abuse was at the root of many crimes.

“It wasn’t until my senior year that I realized what my true calling was,” says Amanda. “The criminal justice program helped me realize that substance abuse is so prevalent and that most of those who suffer from addiction don’t belong in the justice system, but need help in order to change their ways.” Amanda, who landed a job at Sunrise detoxification center in Toms River, will return to GCU this summer for the Clinical Mental Health/Professional Counseling master’s program. “Everyday I go to work and feel as though I am helping people makes me feel fulfilled,” she says. “If it wasn’t for my time at Georgian Court I can’t say where I’d be right now.”
