House Calls with Kiersten

with Kiersten Gallagher

House Calls with Kiersten offers an opportunity for program participants and community members to check-in with Kiersten. All of our face-to-face interactions that we are used to having at Smith Center – when you walk in the door, when we interact during programs I facilitate, and the times that we connect after you’ve attended other classes and workshops – are very important to me. I would like to set this time aside, for you and I, to catch up and address any concerns, to be philosophical together, or to laugh together; it’s up to you!

I plan to set an hour each month to schedule 15-minute chat sessions with anyone who would like to connect. This will be offered for as long as we are away from the Center. I look forward to seeing you for these one-on-one interactions and to being available to you just like I was on U Street.

Please review the “House Calls with Kiersten” Calendly appointment scheduler to select a time slot for your appointment. Please indicate in the notes whether you would like a phone call or Zoom; Kiersten will contact you with the details. All appointments and participant information will be kept strictly confidential.
