Opportunities for advancement abound at Richmond Community Services – and job satisfaction is enormous!
I started in direct support as a part-time child care technician at Richmond 34 years ago while I was still in school, studying to become a Licensed Practical Nurse. Now I’m assistant vice president of clinical services and supervise services throughout the agency.
As I took advanced training and earned my QMRP and RN, more opportunities opened up for me than I could have dreamed of. Many of my friends, on the other hand, had to leave their agencies to get ahead.
But at Richmond many of my managers also have moved up through the ranks. They’ve been supportive and mentoring throughout my career here. And I encourage the same kind of success stories for the people I supervise, urging them to reach for the stars and strive to get ahead.
But it’s more than career growth that keeps me at Richmond. It’s the strong bonds I’ve developed here. It’s knowing that I am making a positive difference in the lives of the individuals we support and their families – watching them grow as I’ve watched my own family grow.
