First impressions are lasting ones and the first step in building long lasting relationships. A person must be aware of their presence and understand themselves to have a confident professional presence.
Mental Health Professional The mental health professional I interviewed was Carol McClelland of Freedom House Recovery Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

These objectives consist of work practices that would better help me in my field of management. I develop questions for myself such as, what does it take
