“This is a highly competitive spot that Amy won. I was delighted to write her a letter of reference,” said Dr. Marilyn Benoit, Devereux Senior Vice President and Chief Medical and Clinical Officer.

At the Leadership Academy this August, Amy will participate in a variety of learning and coaching opportunities involving leadership assessments, writing assignments, lectures, peer discussion groups, and experiential exercises. “It’s an honor to receive this scholarship, and represent Devereux at the Leadership Academy. I look forward to becoming a ‘transformational leader’ with the other participants in the program, and together addressing the variety of challenges in the mental health field,” said Amy Kelly.
