Feedback

“This was a game changer for me and provided me with so much important guidance and opportunities for networking that I could not get through my school’s professional development. It was also such a warm community of professionals–something that I’ve rarely found in professional development. Thank you for pushing for this program and for your hard work. It was a wonderful welcome into the profession.”
