EPBC Case Manager
One of my driving needs has always been to work with and help people. This personal need is what brought me to work at INEO. After starting with INEO as receptionist, I moved on to the position of EPBC Intake worker, and now am excited to be working with clients as their Case Manager.
I grew up in Ucluelet on the west coast of Vancouver Island and moved to Port Alberni, my husband’s home town, in 1994. I attended North Island College where I obtained my Office Career Training then my Medical Office Assistant Certificate in 1995. I went on to work at North Island College as a receptionist on a casual basis. I then was hired at West Coast General Hospital as a medical steno in the Medical Imaging Department. During this time my husband and I started a silviculture forestry company which we operated until 2001. After having my daughter in 2002 I was fortunate to stay home with her until 2011.
I had this wonderful opportunity to re-enter the work force here at INEO Employment Services. I am now a Certified Career Development Practitioner after attending the Career Development Practitioner Specialization Program through Yorkville University. I enjoy this work very much as I am working with clients and have the opportunity to assist them and also learn from them. Since being at INEO I have witnessed some amazing successes in clients’ employment goals and also in their personal growth. For me this is what life is all about, always moving forward in all aspects of your life. I have learned a very important lesson here at INEO, and that is to always be aware that every person has their own life story and that is what has brought them to where they are today. Working at INEO feels like a perfect fit for me and I hope to continue to learn from our clients and continue to move forward in my life also.
There isn’t a person anywhere who isn’t capable of doing more than he thinks he can.
