I have been with the McNabb Center for three years. I first began in Anderson County as an IST clinician. After roughly two years, I was asked to become a school based liaison. I was amazed with how McNabb was able to integrate mental health services into various schools. Within a short time of being there, I realized that there was such a high need for more school based liaisons. I wanted to be a part of the growth within the school system. This is what led to me applying for the Team Leader position in Blount County. I always knew that I wanted to advance within McNabb, but I didn’t know where to begin. I decided to take a leap and apply for the Team Leader position. After interviewing, I received a call offering me the position. I could not contain my excitement to begin a new journey and work with other school based liaisons. From day one, I have never felt more welcomed by a group of people.
In the little time that I have been Team Leader, I have learned so much about myself and what kind of supervisor I want to be. The Senior Director and Services Coordinator have been great role models, and have helped me so much with gaining my confidence and helping me see my true strengths. I could not have asked for a better leadership team and supervisors to mentor me. The Blount County clinic is like nothing that I have seen before. The employees here are so passionate and proud of the work and contributions that they bring to the community. They are always striving to come up with better ways to support the needs of our clients and the community. I have never been more proud to be a part of such a supportive and cohesive team. They are the true definition of our mission.
