“Though I was fairly knowledgeable in the field before LEND, I have found it to be rewarding on both a professional and personal level. I believe it has enhanced my career options. It has connected me with an incredible national network of researchers and practitioners. And while I am no stranger to family issues, the LEND family experience has deepened my appreciation of the importance of family voice in policy-making. I would like to believe that it is making me a better policy maker and practitioner.”
