I enjoy that it is challenging and dynamic. My role requires constant adaptation and learning so that I can prepare future counselors to be multiculturally mindful in developing culturally responsive interventions.

Quote: “No vision, and you perish; No Ideal, and you’re lost; Your heart must ever cherish, Some faith at any cost. Some hope, some dream to cling to, Some rainbow in the sky, Some melody to sing to, Some service that is high.” ― Harriet Du Autermont
