I first came to Community Resources unsure of what I would experience in my work here. What I found was an agency that first and foremost puts the needs, health, and safety of the people it supports above all else. I found a network of people dedicated to guaranteeing that each person being supported is cared for with respect, understanding, and kindness. And this is the reason I find myself still here.
As a Training Specialist, I have become more involved than I ever could have imagined, preparing and instructing incoming staff, helping to develop effective training curricula, and ensuring staff is knowledgeable in their responsibilities as they continue at Community Resources. My background in Education has allowed me to continue to find ways to connect with the staff we train in order to provide a more effective training.
In my personal life, I enjoy telling myself I will one day read my vast collection of books, collecting many pictures of cats, and burning every single batch of chocolate chip cookies I have ever made.
