Dodie Limberg

IDodie Limbergt is my pleasure to announce my interest in serving as the next SACES President. I am currently a Counselor Educator at the University of South Carolina. I worked as a school counselor and clinical mental health counselor in Florida, Switzerland, and Israel. My research interests include school counseling, research identity development, and altruism. Service to our profession is a priority to me. I currently serve as a mentor for the Counselor Education and Supervision fellows program, and as an editorial review board member of Counselor Education and SupervisionProfessional School Counseling, and Counseling and Values Journal. Additionally, I was the chair of the SACES Special Committee on Journal Development. Under my leadership, the committee developed a plan for the new SACES Journal, Teaching and Supervision in Counseling (TSC). I was a member of the ACA Research and Knowledge Committee, and I previously served on the ACA Governing Council, ACA Executive Committee, and ACA School Counseling Task Force. I was selected as a SACES Emerging Leader and as an AARC Emerging Leader. I am interested in serving the members of SACES as your president by continuing to empower and support diverse counselor educators and supervisors in scholarship, advocacy, community, education, and supervision. In this role, I intend to continue to support and develop new initiatives that are focused on research. For example, I plan to offer more opportunities for SACES doctoral student members and new professional members to enhance their understanding of research, and provide more support for SACES members to conduct research focused on client and student outcomes. I believe that my professional and service experiences, research interests, and servant leadership attributes will contribute to the SACES leadership team and membership. Thank you for your consideration!

Caitlyn BennettIt is with pleasure and excitement that I express my interest to serve as SACES Secretary for the 2019-2020 term. I am dedicated to the field of counselor education and counseling as my passions are founded in helping and serving others. I find motivation and joy in creating effective and intentional collaborations that create an atmosphere of growth, learning, and development. My commitment and interest in being part of SACES began early on in my doctoral studies. I was selected as a 2016 SACES Emerging Leader, earned a 2016 SACES Best Practice and Research Award Grant, and was selected as the 2017 SACES Outstanding Graduate Student, Doctoral Level Award. I quickly saw how these opportunities made available to graduate students demonstrated the high level of commitment SACES has in supporting and advocating for graduate students’ growth and development. I have also had opportunities to connect with executive board members of various educational organizations. In my role as Communications Chair for the Counseling and Human Development division (Division E) of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), I am responsible for maintaining an open and productive lines of communication through the development and maintenance of the AERA Division E website and through social media platforms. I hope to apply this same communication style as SACES Secretary. Furthermore, as a former Co-Secretary for the Counselor Education and Supervision Doctoral Student Organization (CEDSO) at the University of Central Florida, I further developed an appreciation and understanding for the need of maintaining organized records. As a member of the Specialty Standards and Statements committee for the Association of Assessment and Research in Counseling (AARC), I contribute to making sure the standards of AARC are current and relevant for its members. Finally, as an Assistant Professor at the University of North Texas, I am grateful to have the opportunity to support and mentor students through SACES’ objectives of Scholarship, Advocacy, Community, Education, and Supervision. Ultimately, in serving as your SACES secretary, I will continue to embody and encourage these very objectives that make SACES and its members a strong force within the world of counselor education. I appreciate your time and consideration for the opportunity to serve as your SACES Secretary for the 2019-2020 term. Thank you.
