Featured NABS Board Biographies

Note from the editor: As a part of an effort to strengthen our connection with our membership we are including short biographies of our board members to help you get to know them better. Thus in this issue we have included the biographies of Treasurer, Candice Chapman, and Board Member, Cody Bair. The rest of the board’s biographies will appear in future issues.

Candice Chapman


Hello! My name is Candice Chapman and I currently serve as the NABS treasurer. I've been a member of the NABS board since 2011. Although I’m originally from Mississippi, I currently reside in Minnesota. I’m a graduate student at the University of Minnesota where my program is Counseling and Student Personnel Psychology. In my limited spare time I like to read and travel. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns. I look forward to hearing from you!
