As a professional who treasures the gifts of knowledge that have been passed along to her throughout her time in the field, Sally is passionate about honoring the legacy of these teachers by sharing knowledge with others. Teaching Erikson students is one way she can create change in the field, by encouraging and supporting curiosity, inclusion, and reflection in daily practice.
