Director of Outreach + Intake Services
My passion, people. I like to connect with people, especially when I have the chance to positively impact someone’s life. I have been with the Natalis Outcomes team since 2016, and love what I do day in and day out. When I am not in the office you can find me at the gym, playing tennis, or hanging out with my dog Cali.
Even when I was a child, I knew I was put on earth to serve others. I started working in the health care field in 1988 and haven’t looked back. I believe that we were all put here to make humankind better and I work to be a part of that. When I had the opportunity to work at Natalis Outcomes I knew I was a part of something much bigger – I was home! When I’m not working, I enjoy the outdoors, hanging out with my family and friends, and spending time with my granddaughters.
I started my career working in human resources for a wonderful company in the human services field. After that, I worked for a number of years as the Director of a nonprofit doing amazing work in Haiti. Now, full circle complete! I am back working in human resources and office administration at Natalis Outcomes with an amazing group of people! In my free time, I love spending time with my husband and teenage daughter, our two BIG dogs, and one crazy cat.
In my daily work, I enjoy supporting the provider to be efficient and resourceful in connecting clients to the care and resources they need. I started at Natalis Outcomes in February 2020 and have been assisting Dr. Hoistad with this schedule and clinical cases. When I am not in the office, I’m either watching Netflix, exercising, or cooking.
Favorite organization: Planned Parenthood
My favorite thing to do when helping our clients is assist with goals under the “other” category. I love working with my clients to problem solve for solutions to seemingly impossible tasks! The best thing about the clients that I work with is that we work together using patience and understanding to achieve the goals that they’ve set up.
Favorite organization: Save the Boundary Waters
My favorite thing when working with a client is building rapport and a strong foundation to best support their goals. The best thing about our clients is their optimism. Despite some bumps in the road, our clients find the silver lining and pursue an ideal future.
Favorite organization: Second Harvest
My favorite thing to do with our clients is to listen, and the best thing about the clients we serve is their individuality.
Favorite organization: “Celebrate Me Week” (It’s a self-esteem camp for kids going into 7th grade)
My favorite thing to do is help a client find affordable, stable housing. I find that everything else in their lives starts falling into place once they know they have a place to lay their heads each night. I love being able to find common ground with my clients, to build trust and to know that I can help them connect with services which will enhance their lives.
Favorite organization: Voices for Racial Justice
My favorite thing to do when helping clients is finding resources or programs to refer my clients to, knowing that it fits their interests and will help them meet their goals. The best thing about the clients we work with are the conversations we have and the stories they share. Every day I get to practice empathy and compassion as I interact with clients and listen.
Favorite organization: Fred Wells Tennis and Education Center
My favorite thing to do with our clients is to help them with the citizenship process. I like working with the immigrant/refugee population. I also like the psychological evaluation process.
My favorite thing to do when helping clients is working on whatever they want. What I mean by this is, I like seeing them empowered, and taking life back into their own hands. Personally, one of the best things about the clients I work with is observing their resilience. When listening to stories and how I can help, it amazes me what some individuals have gone through, yet are so determined to meet a specific goal. I also appreciate the relationships we have built, because being vulnerable is never easy.
Favorite organization: Bridging
I really enjoy helping our clients through the process of Bridging (mostly because it’s the last step to stable housing). Each of our clients is different and unique which keeps it interesting. Each client has their own story.
I really enjoy our clients, making them feel empowered and motivated to take charge of their health appointments and medications. I think getting to know each client individually and developing a professional relationship with each client. There are some clients that are on their 8th H&W so I feel like I have more of a rapport with them.
Favorite organization: Feed My Starving Children.
I think the best thing about the clients that we work with is that they have so much perseverance. I like to remind the clients that we work with on the little successes and celebrate them together.
I love creating relationships with clients and being able to be with the client in every step of their journey. The best thing about the clients that we work with is that every individual is unique and has different needs which presents new and rewarding challenges to the work that we do.
We are committed to taking meaningful action to prevent and respond to incidences of racism and social injustices we witness. We strive to make our employees and clients, of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, feel safe from harm, discrimination and aggression while under our watch.
It is also our policy to protect gender identity and expression as well as sexual orientation. We are fervently invested in being a safe and supportive space for LGBTQ members .
We view diversity as including all of the intersecting identities and characteristics that make us unique individuals. We pledge to serve our staff and our clients in a manner conducive to building trust, understanding and respect through compassion, kindness and support.
It is our sincerest desire to engage in ongoing self examination of our biases. We are invested in creating dialogues for growth and we take responsibility to educate ourselves about the impact of the direct and indirect inequities faced by those who work and those who receive services at Natalis Outcomes. We appreciate that none of us are perfect people. Therefore, if we fall short in even the slightest of ways, we expect and invite our staff and clients to speak up so we may respond with intent, rectify and do better.
