Chet graduated with a BA in Psychology from Plymouth State University and earned a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology from Northeastern University. He has spent the majority of his career working in the mental health and higher education fields. Chet is passionate about the fact that everyone deserves a fair opportunity to succeed and that potential cannot be measured using a single gauge of a global scale. It is important to Chet that educational & vocational opportunities, life skills development, and a general sense of safety and belonging are available to all. The capacity to learn and grow, he believes, is entirely connected to a secure environment in which one can try new things without the fear of failure and ridicule.
