UMass Amherst University Without Walls recently interviewed Suzin Bartley, the Children's Trust Executive Director, a 1980 graduate about her work at the Children’s Trust and her trajectory. Discussing her work at the Children’s Trust and the path that led her there, the interview provides insight into the pursuit of a meaningful career.
