“Working for ACA has been way more than just a job. It has been one of the greatest experiences and honors of my lifetime. I am indebted to all who walked with me on this journey, and I hope that as I exit, I am leaving ACA and the counseling profession just a little better than when I started.”
On June 30, I will look back knowing there were many more good days than bad ones. What made the good days so “good” were the people I was blessed to work with at the staff, volunteer, member and leader levels.
Given what society has experienced over the past few years, I truly believe that the work of those who identify as professional counselors has made things much better than what might have been.
Counselors understood the importance of continuing to provide services in whatever way possible during the pandemic. Rather than simply plugging along, you “plugged in” by using technology when necessary so that you could continue helping others.
“With all that is currently going on in the world, I also continue to be in awe of the love shown by so many professional counselors and counselor educators through efforts to improve our communities.”
