In 2018, a Direct Support Supervisor position for Sierra Home was available and Stephanie’s supervisor saw her leadership potential and encouraged her to take on the role. She held this position for the next three years. Stephanie knew she had found the right place to build her career because her supervisor believed that she could do the job, even when she had doubts.
Then in 2021, she became the Manitowoc Region Administrative Assistant and still holds this role today. In this position, she has numerous responsibilities that support the efficient operation of all the programs in the region. She has successfully found a way to continue to support the clients and staff of the region, while at the same time growing her own skills and talents. Stephanie says the best part of her job is knowing she makes a difference in someone’s life and, even though she is no longer in the programs daily, her current role helps keep the individuals we support safe.
Stephanie has always been a quiet person and she explains that MyPath has made a difference in her life because of the connections she has made with so many different people. She has gained confidence in her abilities, come out of her shell and has formed lasting relationships.
