Krista Woods

Calumet District Chair, 2018-2020

Krista Woods (MSW, University of Illinois at Chicago; LCSW) has worked in the field of social work/social service for over 20 years. She has worked in senior leadership and direct service in her various positions. Her dedication and high level of professionalism and ethics spans services in child welfare, inpatient and community mental health, managed care, and currently as founder and president of Integrity Clinical Consulting and Training in Homewood, IL, which provides training and clinical therapy services. Many of her clients receive Medicaid benefits, are of color, and/or are members of the LGBTQ community. She is licensed as a continuing education provider and conducts trainings in Illinois and across the US on ethics, cultural competence, and other topics. Many of her trainings focus on professional and firsthand experiences being a person of color, and working in and with marginalized and oppressed individuals, families, and communities. Her passion in training and education is to help social workers better understand impacts of various forms of racism and oppression, and how to use our privilege as social workers to help others and to work toward greater institutional changes in society. She was instrumental in developing and leading integrated care teams in the state’s Medicaid expansion program, and created a statewide mobile mental health crisis protocol for Medicaid managed care plans in partnership with community mental health centers.
