What brought you to Partners in Excellence? I wanted to work with young kids and their families and felt like Partners was a place that would allow me to do both!

Describe your fellow Partners employees in three words: Helpful, Hardworking, Dedicated

What is something most people don’t know about you? Something a lot of people don’t know about me is that I spent two weeks in Israel and got to swim in the dead sea!

Do you have any advice for someone who is just starting their career at Partners? Ask so many questions!! There’s never a dumb question and it can be a lot of information at times so don’t be afraid to ask any questions.

What podcasts should be on everyone’s must listen list? I love the podcast the health code! It talks about everything from healthy eating and exercising to mental health and organizational strategies that I find super relatable and helpful.

If you could be anyone for a week, who would it be and why? I can’t think of anyone specific!! Maybe Alex Morgan? I used to play soccer and it would be cool to experience being on the women’s USA team!

Is there a moment, a specific story, event, or a kiddo that really stands out to you in your time at Partners? There is a client in Pod 1 and when I first started at Partners he was completely non verbal. After about a year at Partners his language really started to take off and although I’m no longer in his pod whenever I see him I am just shocked and so excited at how his language has developed and how he’s starting to string sentences together!! It’s just really sweet and encouraging to see his progress over time! Client progress is truly the most rewarding feeling ever!

Which of our core values most resonates with you and why? I think its a tie between positive attitudes, and creative problem solving! Having a positive attitude impacts how your day goes and impacts the attitudes of the people around you! I also think creative problem solving is key because what worked with a client one day may not work again the next, and I think we are always thinking of new ways to help each client. I’m always so impressed with some of the ways my coworkers help clients work through different situations each day!
