I like the fact that FSRI leadership and admin help you to reach your goals and help you to grow as a staff member and as a person. I also like the work environment, my co-workers and the job that I do.

I love working for FSRI. No matter what department you’re in, you know that you’re working towards the greater good of the community and the people around you. FSRI cares about the community deeply, but also cares about their staff on a personal level. I’m proud to work for an organization that helps others so much.
I have finally found the perfect place to work! It has been a journey which started when I was 16 years old and I got my first job as a waitress at Newport Creamery, and then continued with teaching jobs after college in Colorado, China, and Washington DC and then segued into social service work here in Providence, I joined FSRI last March (2021). I knew I was destined to love this place shortly after I applied for the position as a Family Visitor with HFA.

When I started working at Family Service of Rhode Island, I didn’t know what I was looking for. I had just transitioned from work with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and was looking for my “next steps”. I never could have imagined the professional growth opportunities I found working here; I started with FSRI in 2019 as a program manager of our family shelter Lucy’s Hearth, and today hold the position of Director.
