What degrees and certifications do you have?

When did you start at Joseph House?
I joined the Joseph House team in June 2017.

Describe your role at Joseph House.
I assist veterans with their reintegration back into the community and independent living by helping with daily needs such as getting medical attention, employment assistance and transitioning successfully back into the civilian life.

What inspired you to work at a rehabilitation facility as a career?
I have previous work experience helping adults with addiction. I have family and friends who have successfully battled addiction, and unfortunately some who did not. I chose Joseph House in part because I have nothing but respect and appreciation for our nations veterans. I myself did not enlist in the military, but I have family and very close friends who served our country. I feel that there is no group more deserving than our brave men and women who help protect the U.S.

What is your favorite part about working with veterans?
The best part of working with veterans is seeing their pride in serving our country. Although many of them did not served together, there is still a strong bond and brotherhood between them that only the military can create.

In your opinion, what makes Joseph House successful?
I feel that the dedication of our veterans and staff is what makes Joseph House successful. Everyone is on the same team, working to make each client a success story. As a Cincinnati native, I love seeing how Joseph House continues to give back to the community while changing lives.
