“I have never been more challenged to be better or given the freedom to grow anywhere else. Someone once told me that it’s not the challenges we face that define us but how we manage them. Everyone at the Home is faced with incredible new challenges every day. I am inspired at work constantly. I don’t like my job—I love my job. This is my family and my home as much as anyone that lives here.”
