Benedictine University Spring 2021 Commencement
Houlihan, Olivia Michela
Sent Tribute to:
Dr. Somers, Thank you for your unwavering guidance and support these past few years. You’ve continuously challenged me to consider alternative perspectives, encouraged me to sit with difficult questions, and demonstrated the importance of being an empathic listener. You always made learning engaging, innovative, and meaningful in the classroom. When I faced one of the greatest challenges during my internship, you were the mentor I turned toward. You sat in the sadness with me, helped me honor my grief, and provided me with words of wisdom. I’m so grateful for your dedication to our program, to your students, and supporting the next generation of clinicians. Thank you, thank you for helping me see my worth and believing in my abilities.
