After three years of service, Angela M. Kuemmel, Ph.D., ABPP, one of the original co-founders of the Rehab Riff Raff, has transitioned out of her leadership role. Angela, along with the other Rehab Riff Raff leaders, is very passionate about the development of a "leadership pipeline" so that the students and early career practitioners of today have opportunities to develop the skills and gain experience to become our leaders of tomorrow. As a result, the Rehab Riff Raff leadership has a "triumvirate" model of Past Chair, Chair, and Incoming Chair, where following every cohort one leader transitions off and a new leader joins up.
This has multiple benefits, including reducing overall workload for our leaders (who generously donate their time) as well as making sure that for every individual currently going through the process, they are able to take advantage of the knowledge and experience of leaders who have all THEMSELVES been through the process in just the last two years, making sure that all knowledge dissemination is current and up-to-date.
Again, thank you so much Angela! You're amazing.
