Transplant Social Workers
The transplant social worker is a licensed mental health professional who offers patients and families assistance and support with the many challenges they face during the transplant process. The social worker is a link to hospital and community based resources that offer practical assistance for each patient's particular set of circumstances.

A senior clinical social worker, Noelle began working in the Transplant Institute in 2004, and prior to that, she was a clinical social worker for the inpatient medical/surgical service at BIDMC. She earned her Master's Degree in Social Work from Boston University School of Social Work in 2000; her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Mount Holyoke College in 1995, and since 2003, she has been a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
"I have worked at BIDMC for the last seven years, most recently here in the Transplant Institute. My patients have helped me understand the challenges of living with chronic illness. I find building relationships with patients across the transplant continuum, and helping patients to navigate the complexity of the medical system, to be enormously rewarding and inspiring."
