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.
