Owner & Administrator
Human Resources Director
Senior Program Director
I have worked in the human services field for eight years. I worked my way up in the field from an overnight staff person to a Program Director. I enjoy working one on one while doing direct care and being a supervisor. I also believe in challenging myself and continuing to learn things. I want to help as many people as I can. Hobbies outside of work include hiking, exploring the Pacific North West, and listening to music.
I came to New Challenges in September 2020 having over 18 years of experience managing group homes in the field. My primary focus is on person centered planning and community supports. It’s rewarding when clients succeed in the goals they set out to achieve for themselves. In my free time I enjoy volunteering and attending events with the Special Olympics and ARC as well as playing guitar, piano and hiking with my Jack Russell Terrier.
