New Training Specialist Joins Center Staff

Hi everyone. My name is Caleb Berkemeier, and I am the new Training Specialist for the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center.

When my teaching fellowship ended, I was looking for a job outside of academia that had an educational mission. I found that mission here at the ADA Center.
