1) What drew you to Room One originally and what continues to motivate you in your work as the Office Manager?
I initially visited Room One seeking services during a difficult transition in my life. The warmth and genuine care that I was greeted with provided me with a lasting sense of relief and comfort. I was encouraged to be in a position to join such a dynamic and conscientious team and help provide a similar sense of recognition and care to members of this community that I have come to love.
2) What has been your biggest project or accomplishment these past several months at Room One? Time to brag about your hard work!
I have worked alongside Elana to create Room One's annual budget, a time intensive delve into the financial structure of the organization and individual programs. This important task proved quite powerful in strengthening my understanding of how Room One operates and allocates its services, and affirmed my appreciation and excitement about being a part of this work.
3) Any fun plans for you and your family this upcoming Spring/Summer?
My kiddos and I plan to take a trip to the East Coast this summer to visit friends and family. We're already making our bucket list of must-do adventures, including favorite hikes, whitewater rafting, firework celebrations, and horseback trail riding. I am looking forward to connecting with the land and faces of my youth, and sharing these experiences with my kids.
