Family Protection Worker (Current Employee) – Jackson, MS – 10 October 2013
A typical work day would consist of testifying in court, visiting foster children, conducting investigations and completing paperwork. There are 7 different units with 5-7 workers working under the supervision of one licensed social work supervisor. The hardest part of the job is fitting all tasks into 8 hours of the day and completing them satisfactorily. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to make a positive impact on the lives of families and children.

Team Lead (Disability Services Supervisor) (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 July 2017
A turn over in CEO's and management were plentiful and not too many for the better - policies were constantly being revised and not passed along. Communication was a low priority - and when are working with human being of diminished capacity this is key. Best part of the position was watching my client flourish . Hardest part dealing with management

I also got to participate in government conference meetings, it was a great opportunity to learn and I am very lucky to have gotten the opportunity to gain experience in such a well established environment.
