Courtney Ferrington

SLS Manager, Shasta and Siskiyou Counties

I began my journey with Compass in 2010 in the field.  During that time, it quickly became obvious this was not just a job for me.  Working with those with intellectual disabilities has shown me how to make the impossible, possible.  Throughout my time in the field, I inspired clients to live a fully inclusive life while going after their wildest dreams.  My greatest strength is building strong connections across the entire team – from clients to staff to their Circle of Support.  Often times, I have entered situations full of broken pieces and took those broken pieces to make a beautiful mosaic by meeting others where they are at and asking what more is possible.  One of the things I love most about Compass is that they inspire you to dream and go fiercely after those dreams.  I started as a Life Guide, became a Pro, and have served as a Case Facilitator.  However, now is the time for my leadership to grow once more as a SLS Supervisor.  Alongside my new journey as SLS Supervisor, I am beginning my college journey as well.  I have spent the last almost decade building up my fellow field staff and clients, and now I have the privilege of taking that impact to a higher level.  Mediocrity just isn’t in my vocabulary.  I greatly look forward to partnering with Case Facilitators to build a foundation of excellence, commitment, and building incredible systems that ultimately help us provide the best services in this field.
