“I think last year. went to my supervisor, Tyler Carpenter, and you know, I was like, he’s like, so what are you going to do for continuing education? And I was like, you know, I’m going to watch this podcast. I’m going to, I’m going to, you know, read this book. I’m going to go to this conference. And he’s like, so you, so out of all that stuff, like, have you talked to, Kevin Enschlmeyer about that? Have you talked to Claire Quibito about that?

It was like, like, yeah, I don’t need to go spend money on all this stuff. Like there’s people here that know and have done it at a very high level for a long time.
