What’s your favorite part of working here?
There are many reasons why I love working at RMHC Richmond. The mission is #1. I am passionate about helping children and families within our community. RMHC is a special place. It is truly a hidden gem in our town. When you walk through the doors at RMHC, it feels just like home. It is comfortable and the house is always filled with smiling children who are here to simply get better. When I arrive at RMHC everyday, it never feels like I am at work. I came in and work everyday with some of the most amazing people I have ever met. As our hashtag is #keepingfamiliesclose, our whole team is one big family as well.
What has been one of the most memorable moments?
My first day working at RMHC Richmond, I met a little boy named Michael. He and his grandmother were here from Belize while Michael received medical treatment. Everyday Michael’s smile would simply light up a room. I was able to see him take his first steps on the front porch of the House. It truly brought tears to my eyes. I was so happy for him. His smile and the smile on his grandmothers face that day will be something I will never forget.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
