How long have you been with Person Centered Services?
I have been with Person Centered Services for over three years! I transitioned over to Person Centered Services back in July 2018.
How did you first hear about our company?
I first heard about the company during my transition from People Inc. in 2018. At that time no one knew what the future looked like, but we all wanted to work together to make it better either way!
What is your favorite thing about working at Person Centered Services?
My favorite part about working at Person Centered Services is the ability to work with so many different people! There is always someone new to meet with their own unique story and abilities. I enjoy being able to be creative in finding solutions to difficult situations.
How does your work help Person Centered Services thrive?
As a Care Coordinator I wear many hats! Care Coordination ensures that each person is heard and supported in a way that fits their needs. Linking someone to the appropriate supports is crucial in allowing them to be who they are and focus on maximizing their quality of life. Every person and situation are completely different, therefore every solution must be tailored to that person. I think that this is where my work helps Person Centered Services thrive. We work together to build relationships with the people we serve, as well as their families and service providers, and in doing so we create a path to help each person reach their goals and dreams.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work or what is one interesting fact people may not know about you?
Outside of work I enjoy camping and riding on the back of a motorcycle! I have a 2-year-old daughter who keeps me on my toes. I love the Fall and spending time with my family. Football games are always a family get-together in my house, especially because my daughter is obsessed with the Buffalo Bills!
Person Centered Services is thankful for the contributions of Care Coordinators like Koreena and all they do to empower people!
