 Position: NHPASO Board President

 Years on board: First

 In NH we are currently living in a fragile state for our  mental health community. I  recently joined the  NHPA because I believe they are at the forefront of helping to educate and  lead our state towards  effective change and compassionate, competent, accessible care  for  clients. I believe regardless of  our title, role, and current position, we all as health care  professionals have a call to action. Each one  of us has a responsibility to use our voice to protect those  who have lost theirs. My goal as an aspiring psychologist is to use my skills to better the lives of others and to serve the community. I can think of no better way to continue to grow in this manner both professionally and personally than to dedicate myself to the NHPA  community.

 Kaitlyn Clay

  Position: NHPASO Vice President

  Years on board: First

  As a current doctoral student at Rivier University, I chose to become  a member of the NHPA           because I believe it is incredibly important to be active in the field not only as a student but also as  a volunteer. It is exciting to be able to network with and learn from the experienced professionals of the NHPA and I hope to “grow up” to become a competent and ethical professional with their guidance and support. It is important to me to be an advocate for positive change in order to further benefit the people we support. Serving as Vice-President on the Student Organization board allows me to be involved in many different ways with talented and dedicated people from all walks of life. It is truly a privilege to be involved in the NHPA and I look forward to welcoming new members of the NHPA Student Organization as warmly as I was welcomed. I am eager to work with my peers to help the Student Organization thrive!

 Erica Lemoyne, MS, LCMHC

 Position: NHPASO Student Liaison

 Serving as a member of the board allows me to be a voice for  all early student    learners in the  field. I chose to become part of  NHPA, as a current doctoral student at Rivier  University. I believe  advocacy is valuable to enhance future students in the field.  Networking  and collaborating with a  roundtable of experienced and  professional minds allows me to keep  early students informed  about  state and related learning opportunities in the growing field while  supporting specific student needs. I believe actively participating, engaging and understanding  everyone’s unique culture will bring a voice to enhance future change. It is an honor and privilege to be a part of NHPA and be a voice for future learners.
