I have chosen to work at Lynn University because it provides both faculty and students an opportunity to engage in dynamic and challenging learning experiences. The benefit of working in a university of this size facilitates a climate of familiarity and frequent interaction between faculty and students. My experience as both a professor and clinician, with a specialty in marriage and family therapy, has taught me the value of working in a context that fosters opportunities for developing meaningful relationships, and how these relationships encourage important linkages between learning and life experiences.
