Tell us a little about what made you choose this career path.
I have been with Pivot Point for over 2 years, and am a mother of 4. I have worked in Manitoba as an Inclusion Specialist in daycares and in Alberta as an Educational Assistant. I am thrilled to have many roles within Pivot Point. I am the Regional Manager for Abbotsford, as well as a Behaviour Interventionist, Child Care Worker, Teen Transition Coordinator, and Program Assistant.
