How long have you been with Person Centered Services?
I began working for Person Centered Services in April of 2019.
How did you first hear about our company?
I have been working in the field for many years in direct care, management, and behavioral services. In the process of this work, I came in contact with Care Coordinators from Person Centered Services. I learned about their positions and the company. I became very interested in working as a Care Coordinator myself!
What is your favorite thing about working at Person Centered Services?
I enjoy many things about working at Person Centered Services. I have built good rapport with my clients, and I enjoy being able to help them in the ways that I can. I love that we have a strong team and company that can come together to help each other and others in our community during times of need. I always knew that I wanted to work in Human Services and to be able to make a difference.
How does your work help Person Centered Services thrive?
My work helps Person Centered Services thrive because the casework that I do upholds our mission to connect people to the care, support and opportunities that maximize their quality of life. Through getting to know our individuals, we can fulfill their requests for services, and also get to know their needs and be able to suggest services that they may not have even known were out there.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work or what is one interesting fact people may not know about you?
One fact about me is that I absolutely love animals, especially cats! I volunteer weekly with Ten Lives Club at a local store near me. Each week, I get to spend time with new cats to help them adapt to humans and socialize them with the other cats. These cats come from all walks of life and include owner surrenders, stray cats, and even some who have travelled up north from southern states like North Carolina and Kentucky. It is so rewarding when you get to see the cats, learn to trust them, and watch them become less skittish to play with the other cats. It is especially rewarding when you get to see them go to their new homes.
Person Centered Services is thankful for the contributions of Care Coordinators like Ashley and all they do to help people succeed!
