About Brian Visconti:
“I am native to the Miami area, but have resided in rural western North Carolina since childhood. After graduating from WCU I initially worked for the Department of Social Services before transitioning to more direct community service positions. Most recently, I worked in an in-school therapeutic treatment program for at-risk kids, which had a great impact on my desire to work with youth and families.
Last year I connected with Dr. Victor Harris regarding the “SMART Couples” (Strengthening Marriages And Relationships Training) program. He and I talked extensively about my past experience and my long-term goals. Dr. Harris suggested I look into the new Ph.D program in FYCS and I was immediately interested. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to work in an area so close to my heart, with so much potential to build a healthier future, and to do so at a school as truly exceptional as the University of Florida.
