Oluwayomi (Yomi) Paseda, is a Licensed Social Worker working towards her Clinical Social Work Licensure. Yomi’s passion for connecting under-served populations with quality service was born through her undergraduate experience and coursework. Before entering the Ph.D. program, she’s acquired experience working in the mental health field with adults in outpatient, inpatient, and residential treatment settings and providing social and mental health services to individuals involved in the criminal legal system. These experiences have strongly influenced her research interests on reentry: the transition from incarceration to the community. Yomi’s research interests also include Black feminist thought and criminal legal reform. As a doctoral student, she seeks to study programming and access to treatment among Black women involved in the criminal legal system. Yomi aspires to become a researcher, consultant, advocate, and educator in her area of expertise.
