Student Spotlight – Karly Buchanan

UTK CFS Community Outreach Practicum


Meet Karly at Hope Resource Center

“I really wanted to work in an environment that focused on helping others. I knew that HOPE offered many opportunities of this through not only saving future lives, but also building a relationship with these future mommies.

I was really nervous to be thrown into a work environment where relationship were already established and everyone had a place in the office.

This concern was immediately taken away when I walked in on my first day. Everyone that I spoke with was warm and welcoming and by the second day I felt like I had been there for weeks.

I have really loved being able to be in a real work setting and being able to connect with the workers and seeing what my future career may look like.

I have really loved how I have been able to be a part of all different things at HOPE. Whether it is interacting with the patients or collecting fundraising money, I have really enjoyed being a part of each of these things.”
