Dr. Eric Baltrinic is an Assistant Professor of Counselor Education, most recently at The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama; home of, well, I hear they have a pretty good sports team. His professional identity can be best described as “complex” with his rock and roll drummer dreams being amicably replaced by writing and other creative endeavors. Eric is involved in numerous counselor education associations, committees, and projects and publishes on the topic of teaching in counselor education. And, while they say: “never give the drummer a mic,” Marty is willing to have me co-host this podcast, and I need a mic for that. So, let the adventures begin!
