Bidding Farewell to BeWell

Dear WVU HSC Community,

My final day at BeWell has arrived. I am both sad to go, yet know you are in the exceptional hands of Layne Kehl as my replacement. Layne comes to BeWell from the Carruth Center, having served our students for a decade. She began her time with Carruth in an office located at HSC, so this is a full circle moment in her career.

Dr. Brian Quigley remains as BeWell leadership, serving the psychiatric needs as he always has (and with grace, expertise, and the best mix of humbleness and humor I've ever had the honor to work with) for our students.

Maleah King remains our fearless Program Coordinator and truly the heart of our work with you. As an added holiday bonus, there is now a Gabby to add to her family's therapy dog repertoire with our faithful Gus.

You can continue to reach us at our office line: (304) 293-2660. Maleah will work her magic to get you set up Layne. Alternatively, you can reach out to Layne via email:

Now to the business of goodbye...

You are an inspiring group of faculty, staff, and students. I have had a front row seat to how our future healthcare leaders are being trained in the midst of a global pandemic. There can be no greater test of both our fortitude and Mountaineer strength than what we currently face. You are doing so with such grit and resilience. I am so proud of your efforts and hope that my time with you has in some way impacted how you view the concept of integrating mental health and overall wellness.

Be Well,

- Dr. Jen
