My Walden Residencies

My Walden Residencies

Where did you attend your first residency?

Maryland 2019

What did you find most valuable about residency?

That everyone in their first residency was in the same boat as myself, similar to being a freshman in high school; we all have to go through it.

How did you network at your residency?

Networking is KEY! I have met some incredible women in the program. Two women, one lives in Idaho, and one lives in North Carolina. They have become my closest confidants. We talk regularly and support one another's doctoral journey.
