She was supervised by Chad Kline, a CWU Alumn, who works as a Program Manager. Mr. Kline and the rest of the office were very impressed with Ms. Gonzalez. Following the completion of her placement, she applied to the Twin Rivers Community Facility (DSHS) and was hired on to a full-time position in March 2018.
