Her expertise and experience gives her the knowledge to connect with her students, as well as her clients. She is a change agent, facilitator and an advocate and I am fortunate to have had her as a Professor and now, as a colleague that I can call and consult with and ask her expert opinion.

"Many positive attributes come to mind about LaTanya Tolan, LCSW, M.A. Ed. Of these many positive attributes, I will focus on ways that her professional work is a unique combination of spiritual/cultural groundedness, authenticity, vision, intelligence, commitment, and humor. Ms. Tolan's exquisite abilities to draw upon the aforementioned attributes to effectively assess, adapt, and respond to various situations, some of which would test the clinical and ethical competence of others, is noteworthy. Her exemplary work as a clinician, consultant, presenter, professor, administrator, entrepreneur, and life-long learner is inspirational.
