Greetings,

My name is Vivian Phan and I’m the caseworker at the Social Work Hub.  I’m excited to be part of the GPISD family for the school year 2019-2020!  I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Human Resources from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln 2004 and a Master’s degree in Social Work with a concentration in Direct Practice with Children and family from the University of Texas at Arlington 2009. Prior to joining the GPISD family, I was a CPS caseworker for 10 years in serving and advocating for the children and families.  I’m passionate about working with children, adolescents, and families to help to make a difference in their lives. I believe everyone should have a chance for a helping hand and I want to guide them through their needs and find the services that they are looking for.
