The Best Views Come After the Hardest Climbs

Riding a flat road feels good, has minimal challenges, and is pretty painless; however, life is far from a flat road. Life is a journey of rolling hills, long steady climbs, and super fast downhills. Join Kristin Eicholtz, Executive Director of Career Development, as she shares the twists and turns of her personal and professional journey… proving that some of the best views come after the hardest climbs.

This event is open to everyone at DeSales and is subject to change! We hope to see you there as we start to connect the dots for your future!
