Appropriations Policy Analyst
Audrey Erwin is a second-year Macro concentration student at the Graduate College of Social Work from Arizona. During her time at the GCSW she has been an intern at the SUSTAIN Wellbeing COMPASS Coordinating Center, volunteered as a member of the Harris County Ballot Board, worked as a research assistant on civic engagement research with local Houston communities, and is a Dean’s Advisory Council Endowed Scholarship recipient. Audrey is interested in appropriations, civic engagement, harm reduction, HIV prevention, mental health, healthcare policy, and drug policy reform. Prior to beginning her journey at the GCSW, Audrey worked at an inpatient psychiatric hospital and was motivated to return to school in order to identify ways to better help the vulnerable populations she worked with. The opportunity to participate in the Austin Legislative Internship and gain knowledge of the legislative process and working towards bipartisan policy reform was a deciding factor in Audrey choosing the GCSW.
