I am loving my Walden experience. I believe the university is providing a quality education. I also feel supported by staff and instructors as I move forward.
Obtaining a doctoral degree in counselor education and supervision is one of my proudest moments, followed by securing a faculty position at Montreat College’s counseling graduate program.
I have worked in the substance-abuse field since completion of my bachelor's degree in psychology. I realized that I needed direction—just having a broad human service degree would be limiting. With my higher degree from Walden, my background and experience is now confirmed through my educational knowledge and allows me the authority to speak about social change.
