India Jones stepped into the role as Community Services Manager this past May and is extremely excited about how her new position is flourishing more by the day! She has been busy thinking of more innovative ideas on how to provide increasing opportunities for consumers and other stake holders to impact public policy and systems. India believes in the independent living philosophy and intends to bring the community services side to the fore front with new program development, expansion and provision of services in a creative, effective way.
With Sara Thomas coming on board shortly after as the Individual Services Manager, it is of no doubt that they are going to produce great opportunities as a dynamic duo! India and Sara look forward to working together to bring fresh new ideals and an infrastructure that is filled with disability related services that will stand the test of times. With both Sara and India having previous experience in the healthcare field, they are trained with the ability to have insights from numerous perspectives. Sara’s experience in facilitating psychoeducational groups, crisis intervention, and acute stabilization will open more opportunities for Consumers to participate in individualized services that will provide empowerment and structure in their individual lives. Look out for these two! There are several new developments underway. The future of SIL is looking mighty bright!
