Katie says she enjoys working at Rise because “we are constantly growing as a company and making improvements to our services. There are so many opportunities to expand your learning and grow within the company. I enjoy working with the support teams to strengthen the persons-served skills and celebrating their successes.
“The best part about my job is my coworkers and the team work we display each day- we’re constantly bouncing ideas off of each other and in continual communication to ensure we are being efficient. I also enjoy being so involved with people’s plans and implementing even more of person-centered thinking and language into the Coon Rapids program.”
Before working at Rise, Katie worked as a DSP at a group home for two years working with individuals who have brain injuries. “You create such a connection with the individuals, so it was a difficult job to leave due to the relationships I developed with the individuals and coworkers.”
Outside of work, Katie enjoys reading horror novels (currently reading Doctor Sleep by Stephen King) and playing with her new kitten, Raven.
