How long have you been with Embrace?
I just started working with Embrace June 2019.
Prior to working with Embrace, how long have you been in the human services field? I have been working in the field for 11 years.
How did you get into the human services profession and come to work for Embrace? I have a passion to do some good in this world. During my time in undergrad I worked at a local Boys and Girls Club. That's where my passion for helping the community youth and families developed. I enjoy helping the youth in the community develop and families create positive and healthy relationships and become self sufficient in their communities.
What is the hardest part of your job? The toughest part of my job is learning abut the children and families coming into care and the stories they have faced.
What is the most rewarding part about your job? The most rewarding part of my job is creating safe spaces for children in care and being a positive support to families.
