Brendan O'Connell
Development Associate/Social Work Intern


Brendan joined CaringMatters as the Development Associate/Social Work Intern starting in the Fall 2022. Brendan is pursuing his BSW from The University of Maryland Baltimore County. He was drawn to Social Work while working at Potomac Pathways, an outpatient rehab for adolescents struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. “Seeing the social workers support and advocate for their clients and their positive impact on their lives is what led me to Social Work.”  


He is working with Marie Daly, The Community Resource Specialist in The Whole You Program at the Shady Grove Aquilino Cancer Center, connecting adult patients with community resources.


“Seeing CaringMatters in action firsthand and its ripple effect in the community is remarkable. I am grateful to be a part of the CaringMatters family.”
