What is your favorite part about working at Association House? My favorite part about working at Association house is being able to help others on an individual and social level. I provide education, I listen to them, and bring hope by helping them change their lives. Lastly, I enjoy being a part of someone's transformation journey. I love the environment we have at Association House, my colleagues, and my participants.
How have you maintained a focus on helping our participants during COVID-19? COVID-19 has been very stressful and scary to think about for everyone, but I have been able to set boundaries limiting myself on watching or reading the news. I have used my time to focus on other things. I have encouraged others to use their time on positive leisure activities that they are able to do at home.
What is a fun fact about you? I am an army veteran and I have a 10-year-old son.
