Piccola came to Front Steps in 2008, and with the support of Front Steps staff and residents, finished her bachelor’s degree in social work from Cleveland State University (CSU).

After leaving Front Steps in 2010, Piccola decided to further her education and received her master’s degree in social work from CSU while working a full time job. She is currently employed at Connections, a leading provider of behavioral healthcare services, and is responsible for creating an alcohol and other drugs dependency program.

She currently lives in Cleveland and is working on her PhD. Piccola’s warm spirit, ability to connect with others and experiences are all reasons why the social services field and the Cleveland community are lucky to have her!
