Please tell us briefly what your current position is and what it involves.
My current position as a Personal Care Assistant (PCA) is to provide assistance and support to not only our students, but to staff as well in the safe management and response to undesirable behaviors.
What inspired you to work for Vista?
It was more serendipitous than anything. I had been recently hired for a granted position with another social services entity. When I was informed that the position was put on an indefinite hold, I needed a job, and Vista was hiring. Ten years later, I am still here.
What do you love most about your job?
I’m going to say meeting my wife for my favorite part about my job. That and it is never lacking of a challenge, both mentally and physically. I can honestly say if this was a boring place to work, I wouldn’t have made it 10 years.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I spend most of my spare time chasing after my daughter. But when I do have a moment, I enjoy cooking and kayaking/camping.
