What is your background in mental or behavioral health?
As the Electronic Health Record Technician, I don’t have much background in mental or behavioral health but have learned a lot about the programs over the years.
How long have you been a part of the team at Alexander?
I originally started with Youth Opportunities in 2008 then stayed on the team as a part of Alexander Youth Network when the two organizations merged.
“What makes me happy is when the staff is happy – when they can do what they need to do without any issues, it makes me happy.”
What helps you persevere through long days?
I really take it all one minute at a time. I listen to music or find a motivator that can take my mind off of the phone calls or emails to focus on what needs to get done at the end of the day. There is always a lot to do but it all makes the job easier for our staff which is what matters.
Who has been an inspiration to you and the work you do (at Alexander or outside of the agency)?
Funny story really – I fell into IT after being the one who always fixed our family computers growing up. I was the one to keep them running whenever my dad broke them.
“Keep your mind open and be prepared for all challenges – you never know what is going to be thrown at you.”
