Dear Living Opportunities Partners,
I’m sure we can all agree that the last 18 months have brought us many challenges, unexpected changes, & stretched our ability to ‘adapt & overcome’. We have navigated our way through wildfires, COVID-19, ever changing State, Federal & local health mandates and most recently – transition of leadership here at Living Opportunities.
Together we have persevered because of our supporters as well as the work from our committed staff who are deeply devoted to the people we serve and support. We are strong and resilient in the face of adversity and I believe that we will continue to successfully navigate what comes our way next.
On the topic of ‘next’, I am excited, humbled, and honored to share that I have been selected to be the CEO of Living Opportunities. When I started working at Living Opportunities 25 years ago, I instantly connected to the meaningful work that we do and with the people we serve and support. Throughout the course of my career, I have been a Direct Support Professional, promoted and moved into other positions and prior to my appointment to CEO, I served as the Director of Employment Services.
Living Opportunities has a history of strong and innovative leadership that has grown our organization for decades. These leaders have created a legacy that I am eager to carry on into the future. Over the years my passion has strengthened because our Mission, Vision, and Values are at the very core of everything we do. It is my commitment to all of you that together – we will continue to advance our mission and vision each and every day.
I look forward to connecting with you.
All the best,
