The profession is dynamic and changing now more than ever. Being a part of SU’s expansion program shows their commitment to the profession, quality education, and the ever-changing healthcare environment. As Associate Director of Clinical Education I get to experience my dream job – clinical practice, scholarship, mentoring, administration, and FUN! I’m beyond excited to be a part of this great new adventure!”
