Resident Spotlight

"It's still crazy to me to think about how I didn't know anyone on my staff coming in - now I can't imagine life without them. Each of them brings something unique to the group dynamic, but the common denominators between us are what stand out the most to me. Consideration, sincerity, diligence, kindness. Being able to share this incredible experience with these individuals, to learn from them and to grow with them, is truly a privilege. While everyday as an RA poses new challenges, I find comfort in knowing that I'll never have to face any of them alone. To my wonderful staff, thank you for making Watson Webb a home."
