“As a new CAHL member, I was most excited about meeting and learning from new career mentors. After completing the Mentee Questionnaire, I was contacted by the program coordinator to learn about my goals and which coach(es) could be the best fit. I’m very happy with the two coaches I was paired up with – each had different experiences and perspectives that have been very helpful in my career decision-making process and training opportunity selection while maintaining healthy and joyful work-life integration.”
