When did you join RMHC? October 2015
Why do you work at RMHC? The freedom to perform my job to the best of my ability! The benefits, co-workers, and respectful/professional environment are also big factors in my decision to work here. I love that client care is first without forgetting the need to care for the employees as well. I have been in this field for 35 years. I was blessed with knowing that this was my passion and calling since a very young age. I absolutely love the population I work with. I’ve told myself that if that ever goes away it will be time for me to consider other options.
