Associate Director of Community Services
WISE Employment Solutions
‘Diversity is being invited to the party, Inclusion is being asked to dance!’
I recently heard this quote by VERNA MYERS and thought to myself, wow! Isn’t that what my job is all about? Empowering people with diverse abilities to be economically included in their communities by having meaningful real jobs!
I always wanted to work with people in a way that would empower them and that lead me to do my masters in social work , work as employment specialist, managing an employment service and now work as an “Associate director of Community services” . In this role, I will continue to work passionately towards empowering people to have control and choice in their lives, helping them to have a spectrum of experiences which would help them to have richer and fuller life.
Whenever my team supports anyone to obtain meaningful employment it gets me excited! More excited than when I got my first job!
All I want is employment to be a natural conversation for the people whom we support!
When I am not pursuing this dream, you will find me busy trying out something fancy in the kitchen or enjoying a cup of coffee reading a book!
