The last 21 years have been a pleasurable challenge working and learning with everyone at TURN Community Services. I guess you can say that I thrive on the challenges I and my team face every day. I have had many opportunities to leave, yet my heart is here at TURN Community. I am here because of the Clients as well as all the great people who work for the company whom have inspired me through the years. I’ve had several comical moments which always remind me of the many reasons I continue to get up in the mornings and come to work. The satisfying moments are when a goal has been accomplished and the difference it makes in the individual’s life, or when I accomplish something I have not accomplished before. Learning new things in order to grow with the company has always been an ongoing goal of mine and I will continue to strive for that.
