My first experience with Brandman* was when I was a special education teacher when my district paired up with them for an autism certificate. I liked it because I was able to still work and do everything else I needed to do.
The counseling program prepared me for my surprise career in behavioral health by providing me with a strong background and practical experience in counseling techniques and a strong skill set in research and critical thinking—key in building a leadership career.
My academic advisor was a great support system. He was my advisor throughout my program and he took the time to learn about me personally so we could make the best schedule to accommodate my life.
