Wendigo Lake Welcomes Nicholas Magle-Haberek to Clinical Team
I am very pleased to announce that Nicholas Magle-Haberek has accepted our offer of a full-time permanent position as a therapist with Wendigo Lake. Nick is the first graduate of the University of New Hampshire’s (UNH) dual Masters program (M.S.W. and M.S. in Outdoor Education) and will be coming to us with field and clinical experience gained from a number of work experiences, including Second Nature, Eagle Rock School in Estes Park, Odyssey Adolescent Treatment Center, Summit Achievement and Soltreks. Nick’s extensive and diverse experience as a front line therapeutic instructor and facilitator and his advanced clinical skills can only serve to further enrich our service. Nick has been involved in working with the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP) and Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare Research Cooperative (OBHRC) research database at UNH and will be a great asset to Wendigo Lake’s research program. Nick has presented at several Association for Experiential Education conferences. It is worth noting that Nick will be the second MSW that Wendigo Lake has hired upon graduation from UNH while two of our field Instructors have left us in order to participate in UNH’s dual Masters program. This web of interconnection between organizations committed to continuous improvement and service excellence is tangible evidence of the sentiment that through collaboration we are stronger and ‘a rising tide floats all boats’.
