Field Instructors

“I have had the privilege and opportunity to be a Field Instructor for the last three years. I enjoyed bringing in interns to experience the same joy that I have in the work that I do. I also love to have more than one intern at the site to share their knowledge and develop lasting collegial relationships in and outside of their placement”.
