I just got a job!

FINALLY

I'm so relieved... things were getting pretty tight around here and I was super-stressed out.

I will be a Case Manager in a new (to Las Vegas) agency aimed at child protection.

Yay ME!

No, not yet. I've sent out more resumes than I would like to count, but, nothing yet. Something will come up though. Thanks for asking!

Thank you. It'll be an exciting change for me. For the past few years I've been working with severely disabled adults, making sure they receive the services to give them the highest quality of life possible. I'm sure this new job will be more rewarding AND, at times, frustrating.

Congratulations. I run an agency that provides housing for folks with developmental disabilities. There are certainly challenges in working with vulnerable populations, but you get go home knowing that you're making a difference.

Good Luck

That is exactly the environment that I was working... I didn't RUN the agency, but was a Case Manager/Program Coordinator for a number of the agency's homes.
