I have been a Case Manager for 4 years!! I started in 1999 as direct care staff in Bowling Green, KY at Panaroma working with individuals with developmental disabilities. In the beginning the job was just to get me through college, but by the end of my college years it turned out to be a career for me, which I have grown to love. After graduation I moved to Huntington, WV where I started out as a House Manager which lead to me being promoted to a QMRP and then to a Clinical Supervisor. After two years in West Virginia, I moved back to Kentucky and landed in the job of being a Case Manager in 2008. Since 2008 I have been providing services and enjoying every moment!
