“I am a National Board Certified Counselor (NBCC) and a professor since 1997,” says Ms. Taddeo, who is most proud of the work she’s performed as a counselor, helping individuals with brain injuries, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. She considers an ability to work with adolescents with mental health issues to be her greatest accomplishment.
