Dominick Reyes is working toward becoming a licensed clinical social worker to offer holistic solutions to those who need help, inspired by those he saw helping his brother with autism.

A purpose of helping others

As a child, Dominick Reyes saw how people working in human services helped his little brother, who has autism, and he wanted to do the same. Today this UWSP senior is making good on that promise as an active campus and community volunteer and as he plans his future.
