I was given the opportunity to help open a prison in Hinton Oklahoma, I trained the case management team including, how to maintain a central file on each inmate that each case manager had on their case load. Which consisted on program review, classification, filing order,VNS, CIM's,arrival and release paperwork.
I was the over site for the Unit Team, worked very closely with all Associate Wardens, as well as the Warden and Bureau of Prison over sites.
The hardest part of my job for some reason, some people seem to be unhappy with their jobs, and want to make some sort of job/career change.
I do love what I do, but it’s draining sometimes trying to please everyone.
There were a number of things I liked best about that job. I enjoyed the level of open and direct communication. This moved things along quickly and few things were left unsaid. It was always about solving the business problems. Another thing I liked was your ability to learn new things and take on more responsibility. Everyone was in a constant state of growth.
