Manicka is a Social Work Mentor, Youtuber and Clinical Social Worker.  She is the creator of the Social Work Success Path Podcast where she helps Social Workers, Therapists and Helping Professionals design careers they love and teach what they know. 


To create a global community of Social Workers who are empowered to believe that they can use their Social Work knowledge and skills to transform the lives of others, without compromising their own.

If you follow me long enough, you'll hear all about my mission. But let's bring the focus back to the real MVP (Most Valuable Professional) here...YOU ... 


 Advocating, mission driven, big hearted, planner carrying  superstar. You became a Social Worker to make a difference. To champion the rights of others and to change policy, one system at a time.  

I help Social Workers just like you learn to leverage their Social Work skills, existing knowledge and expertise, and huge hearts so they can build a profitable online business and a purposeful career. 


Why? Because I've been where you are...

  • Overworked and underpaid 
  • Working after hours, weekends, planning community events, dropping off turkeys, presents and baskets, and just giving everything I had to the agencies I worked for
  • Wishing there was a PERFECT balance between doing the work that I loved so much and making enough money to pay my bills 


Since that time, I've successfully transitioned through all of the phases of professionalism that I will be teaching you. Now, don’t get me wrong, I loved working in traditional Social Work roles...I still do in my private practice. But when I discovered the unknown world of content creation and making passive income online WHILE using my Social Work degree — I knew I had to step out of constantly exchanging time for money, and do everything I could to help you do the same.

The Social Work profession is changing at a snail's pace. And if you continue to wait to get "paid what you deserve," you will constantly be on a hamster wheel of job opportunities that are not aligned with who you ultimately want to serve. My motto is, if you don't design your own career plan, you will fall into someone else's plan for you.

Know that my mission is NOT to convince you to leave the Social Work profession, it's actually quite the's to empower you to step into a new truth, different from what you've heard...different from what you've been taught to believe... the truth is that you are the designer of your own career and whatever big goal or idea you is absolutely possible for you! The key is to do what you can, where you are, with what you have. 

So, are you ready?
