Position: TBS Coach
What led you to your current position?
My desire to work more closely with families (and their community partners), and in support of helping them achieve and/or live their desired values and goals.
I built my own home…DIY…and truly found joy in the process of having a vision come to reality.
"Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
What does your average day look like?
I’m up at 5:30AM, water and coffee are necessities; get ready for work; spend time with my daughter and off to work; I meet with, work with, and learn from families, teams, and providers from sun-up til sun-down--and love every minute of it! And then Paperwork Time--it’s what keeps our TBS program/agency viable! And then to the gym for self-care time! & then family-care time: which includes lots of LAUGHTER: games of indoor tag, hide-n-seek, board-games, comedy-hour, dancing, etc. followed by sleep. And repeat! : )
Why do you do this work?
I do this work because I am constantly challenged to think critically about the clients and families that I have been entrusted to serve, and because I’m allowed to PLAY, LAUGH, TEACH, AND LEARN FROM them on a daily basis!
What hope do you have for the future of All-In?
My hope is to see All-In continue its collaborative effort in supporting educational-partners implement academic curriculum while co-currently holding a broader and deeper understanding of the students, families, and communities served.
