Staff Highlight: Elisa Fabian
Elisa is our Foster Care Supervisor and part of Association House's Child Welfare team. Her favorite part of her experience is that there is a sense of community at the house. In honor of Women's History Month, she shares what this month means to her and the women who have influenced her life.
What is your favorite part of your experience with Association House?
My favorite experience of Association House is the sense of community. I’ve never been able to compare another job experience to the one here. It’s the good mornings from reception, maintenance, and even high school students. It is about showing up to work and being happy to be part of this community. Not only for myself but for future generations to come.
What does Women’s History Month mean to you?
March is not only Women’s history month but social work month as well. With that being said, I feel that it is important to take time to thank all those powerful women before me but to also slow down and give myself rest. We are often providing resources and support to families that we forget to take our own advice.
Is there a woman that has influenced you the most in your life?
I’m a huge fan of Selena. I think that what she did for first-generation women is amazing. She taught me to be fearless and to be myself. Representation matters, you know? She broke so many barriers at such a young age.
