Well the day has come, it’s my final day working for mindyourmind *inserts crying gif*
My name is Kathryn and I am the newest employee at mindyourmind. I was hired as a Youth Liaison and I am excited to get working!
Hi, I’m Marnie and I’m going to start off by saying how grateful I am for being the new team member at mindyourmind. I never really thought I was going to be changing careers this year, but here I am!
Maria Luisa Contursi has announced she is stepping down from her role as Program Director of mindyourmind after a 10-year career with the program and 18 years with Family Service Thames Valley (FSTV).
The world is at my feet right now.
Julie Andrews sung the lyrics, “Let’s start at the very beginning, it’s a very good place to start…” but, for the purposes of this abridged autobiography, it isn’t a good place to start. I’ll start 34 years into my life, then I’ll jump to now and then I’ll go back to 1966.
7 February 2001:
I see a lot of things as a paramedic. I see elderly persons who are all alone, with not a single loved one. I see 50 year olds having chest pains and heart attacks. I see the devastating results of alcohol and drug addiction. And death. This one I think about the most: I met her mother first. She was inconsolably sobbing, and couldn't walk without falling over. A nurse had to help her into the hospital.
