Tell us about your BYU internship experience(s):
During the Summer I interned at Primary Children's Child Protection program for sexually abused children and families as well as youth perpetrators and their families. During Fall and Winter I interned at BYU Counseling and Development Center. Both internships were invaluable to me and very rewarding experiences, as was my part time job in the Women's Center.
How did BYU’s MSW program prepare you for your career?
My training not only led to a good job but also to an opportunity to teach classes at BYU.
