My connection to Community Resources began as serendipity in 2011 when coincidental circumstances pointed me this way. While providing direct support, I quickly realized that my values were largely in line with those of the organization. I felt a resonance unlike any I’ve had with previous employers. One of the things I appreciated most was the sense that everyone’s individuality is respected and valued here.
I’ve fulfilled multiple roles within the agency since then, and settled into my current role in 2015. As someone with a background in the social sciences and fine arts, I never would have predicted that I would end up with an occupation around finances. However, this role has proven to be a perfect fit for achieving a healthy work/life balance while at the same time contributing to a community I care about.
