ILS Manager, Siskiyou County
I have the honor of serving as the ILS Manager in Siskiyou County. I entered into a nursing program at College of the Siskiyous immediately following high school. I was the youngest graduate that program has ever had. In nursing school, I learned several important things that impacted who I am today. First, once you have experienced excellence, you will never again settle for mediocrity. Next, wherever you go, go with all your heart. I actually have that engraved on my stethoscope from college. I have a heart for service and have always had a strong desire to walk alongside people to accomplish all they are destined for. The first job I got out of nursing school was as a nurse for a Residential Facility in Redding where I completely fell in love with the clients of Far Northern Regional Center. While I adored that job, I loved something else more, and that is my home in Siskiyou County.
In 2011, I responded to a job listing for Compass in Siskiyou County and have since had the job of my dreams. I began as a Life Guide (caregiver), promoted to an ILS Life Coach, and finally promoted to ILS Manager in 2014. I started with 7 clients as the only Life Coach in Siskiyou County. I have since helped grow Siskiyou County ILS to over 40 clients and supervise 5 amazing Life Coaches.
Empowering people is my passion and seeing the gold in others is one of my greatest pastimes. When I am not at work, I get to do the coolest thing ever: raise my four amazing, loving children: Hunter, Annalyse, Arianna & Allen-Michael. Other things I enjoy are hiking, writing stories and being a foot soldier of the Lord.
