Staff Spotlight – Carly

carlyWhat were you doing prior to coming to Alpha One?

I moved to Maine about a year ago and worked temporarily at a Healthcare Clinic in Portland before coming to Alpha One.   In Massachusetts, I worked at an Area Agency on Aging as part of a program which gave me the opportunity to work closely with staff from a Center for Independent Living.

What unique perspective, or skills do you bring to the team?

I like to try new things and am typically not very apprehensive when it comes to new experiences.  I have a background in Health Education and also went to culinary school so I’d love to find a way to share some of that knowledge.

How has your initial experience at AO been so far?

Great!  I’ve learned a lot during my time here and really enjoy the time I’m able to spend out in the community meeting new people.

What are you looking forward to in the future?

Being a part of Homeward Bound, a new program that Alpha One is part of.  The program’s goal is to assist elderly and disabled adults in moving from institutional to community settings.  I’m also looking forward to my wedding.  I’m getting married in August and can’t wait!

Anything memorable happened out on the road?

Not yet.  I’ve never seen a moose in person before so I’m hoping to catch a glimpse of one in my travels.

What is your personal philosophy in life?

You have to do what’s right for you.
