Every month, we are highlighting one of our dedicated board members so you can get to know some of the people in our community who are committed to ending sexual violence.
This month, we are happy to share a bit about our amazing board member, Gulin Aydin.
What do you do? I am a Clinical Social Worker/Psychotherapist.
Why did you become a board member with SASC? I have worked with many survivors of sexual violence as a therapist. [In my work], I met with SASC and realized how SASC's job is so valuable for survivors. I wanted to be part of this organization.
What does being on the SASC board bring to you? Being a board member keeps me updated on the work that happens in this area and allows me to be extra resourceful for my clients.
Is there anything else we should know about you? I immigrated to Canada from Turkey 15 years ago with my husband and two daughters. I am proud of being a Turkish & Canadian social worker/trauma therapist - it allows me to help hundreds of survivors to process their trauma and improve their lives.
