Aaron R. Soehl

Quality Assurance Internal/External Reviewer

I work as a quality assurance reviewer for USC for the South Carolina Department of Social Services child protective services cases. Our team reviews these cases to ensure that the SCDSS is providing adequate services to the children and families in need in South Carolina.

Previously I worked in direct care of children with special needs for 15 years prior to coming to CCFS at USC. This work included direct care work in group homes, as a special education teacher, case manager, training adults to care for children with special needs and advocating for parents and children in the public school system.

I hope to continue to create a safe community and serve the children and families that are very dear to my heart by providing the SCDSS with quality assurance of the services it provides.
