Q: What do you enjoy most about working at Austen-Dooley?

A: I enjoy just taking care of the individuals that we serve, putting a smile on their face, and helping them complete their daily activities. A close second is my coworkers.

Q: What is one piece of advice for others in your profession?

A: You get out of the job however much you put in. If you’re focused and you try to get to know the consumers, it’s a very rewarding position.

Q: Who in your life inspires you and why?

A: My family inspires me to be a better person, to stay active, and to constantly be productive.

Q: What do you like to do when you’re not at work?

A: I enjoy cooking and baking. I like being outside in nature. I like to watch movies, as long as it’s not late at night, because I’ll fall asleep.

Q: What is something most people don’t know about you?

A: I’m not as shy as I come across. Once you get to know me, I’m actually a chatterbox. Most people would think I’m pretty reserved and quiet.
