I’m excited that Chris as agreed to join me as Associate Director. He is seen as a leader among his colleagues and a true professional by his clients.” Both Marion and Domaleski expect to continue their active work with their clients and the field.
Gong plans on continuing to work full-time for the Center. “Scott and I have worked closely together in the Center’s leadership team for the past 5 years,” Gong said. “I have truly been blessed to work with him and with other great colleagues at the Center. I look forward to spending less time on administrative things and more time working on some exciting projects.”
