Welcome to our Staff!

We're so thrilled you're here!

You’ve just started an amazing journey.  This new job has just plunged you into a completely unique culture.  To help you acclimate well, here’s a roadmap for learning, growth and feedback in 5 sessions over the next 6 months.

"It’s such a miracle to see how much unity we have in our staff.  All our jobs are interlinked so we have to depend on one another.  Whenever I need to ask for help, everyone is gracious and eager to help.  We’re all bent underneath the load together—no one is alone.  I’ve never experienced a staff environment like this before now, and I love it."  --Rhonda Dimirack
