Lynnae Sis – “I have truly enjoyed being a member of WCMT from early on as a student, to leading as the president as a professional. I was inspired as a student meeting working music therapists and learning from them at business meetings and CMTE courses. Being a part of a smaller organization helped me to feel like I belonged at larger events like conference, and gave me confidence to be an active member as a professional and in regional organization. Actually being part of the executive board has meant so much to me. It has fostered meaningful connections with music therapists that have led to all kinds of opportunities like being a clinician for students, giving me confidence to design an internship program, learning new intervention ideas to put into practice, and keeping on pace with what is going on outside my bubble of music therapy. I don’t feel alone. I feel a sense of community and support that recharges me and helps me to keep going as a music therapist and aspire to new things!”
