“I did not anticipate the tremendous impact the DSW program would have on my professional life. I was introduced to a wonderful network of colleagues, my clinical skills were enhanced, and I had the opportunity to teach. I quickly realized how much I enjoyed teaching and as a result I have pursued a career in academia.”
