Chief Administrative Officer, Orlando, FL - June 27, 2015
No two days are ever the same! Supporting staff who perform various functions throughout the agency is my key focus! I've learned how to select the best employee's, to help them establish and attain their own career goals, ensured our Board of Directors and various Board committees are informed and active in the oversight of agency policies and procedures. The hardest part of my job is knowing that we can't always help all the families who need our services. The most enjoyable part is seeing the smiling faces of the children who come to our main office building. I enjoy visiting the Head Start and Early Head Start classrooms when possible and sometimes volunteer as a guest reader. My direct supervisor is the agency's President/CEO. She has shared leadership skills with me and taught me much about financial reporting and risk management.
