I started working at Caron 16 years ago as a student assistance program specialist. The position provided me with everything I was looking for as a young professional balancing my career and family—an opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of young people while also having the energy at the end of the day to devote to my family."
My role at Caron gives me the opportunity to offer support, education, information, and safe spaces for kids and teens to heal and grow as well as understand how to create healthy lives.”
Because Caron is committed to ‘growing their own’, I had opportunities to advance in my career when the timing was right for me and my family.”
