In this series, I’m talking with assessment practitioners who work in unique environments or specialties. The hope is to shine a light on some of the more unorthodox and creative ways to use our assessment skills. Each interview follows the same structure: a short exploration of the employment environment, a discussion about the pros and cons of this environment, and ideas about how to pursue that particular area of practice.
My guest on today’s episode is Dr. Gabi Hurtado. Gabi owns a group practice in Austin, Texas that focuses on community engagement for Latinx folks and involving family members in the assessment process.
