How long have you been with Embrace? I have been with Embrace since June of 2019.
Prior to working with Embrace, how long have you been in the human services field? Before working at Embrace I worked in sales and marketing.
How did you get into the human services profession and come to work for Embrace? I always wanted to give back and make a difference in my community. After getting my MA in Human Rights, my goal was to work in the human services field, but also felt drawn to Marketing. I feel so blessed to finally be working in a position that helps others, but also feeds my passion for Marketing and communicating with new people.
What is the hardest part of your job? So far, the toughest part of my job has been learning everything and finding my voice when talking to potential foster parents. However, I have great supervisors and co-workers who have encouraged me every step of the way and that has been so helpful.
What is the most rewarding part about your job? The most rewarding aspect of my job is knowing that the harder I work, the more children in our community I can help. I am so grateful to be able to give back to my wonderful community and collaborate with so many wonderful organizations.
