As for me, I arrived at L.I.F.E. in November of 2017, after the founder and former Executive Director retired after 38 years of excellent service. I am absolutely thrilled to work for this agency and will continue working towards serving individuals that have selected us to serve them as they move along the continuum in search of their personal goals.

I look forward to becoming a provider an employer of choice by listening to our internal and external customers, and remaining abreast of best practices on a local and national level.
