“I jumped at the opportunity to work in a clinical multidisciplinary setting, as well as be part of the first cohort of the ETS program! Working with clinicians and professionals in their respective fields is such a great environment for our clients, who receive the best clinical care from an amazing team that strives to meet clients at their level and help them achieve their own goals!”
